Tommy Rutherford

Technical Director


There may be no one in the business more comfortable in a hotel ballroom than Enliven’s resident sportsman, Tommy Rutherford.  After all, the Arizona native - and avid golfer, hunter and fisherman - spent the first eighteen years of his production career as an a/v set up technician for AVA/Sound Stage (now PSAV), working in numerous capacities on a variety of meetings, events, programs and live shows.  Tommy’s expertise would also lead to positions as audio-visual Property Director, first for the Arizona Biltmore and later, the Scottsdale Princess Resort (now Fairmont).

Tommy’s true talent for understanding the intricacies of all things technical earned him Project Manager / Technical Director roles with AV Concepts, American Audio Visual and Precise Corporate Staging before joining Enliven in the fall of 2012.  He has managed technical services for groups of 50 to 10,000 and has worked throughout the United States, Mexico, Ireland and Canada, once personally assisting billionaire investor Warren Buffett with his keynote presentation.

Clients served include: ADP, Capital Cities/ABC, Coca-Cola, Estee Lauder, Grand Prix of Phoenix, LPL Financial, WEA (Warner Elektra Atlantic), PolyGram and many others.
