Matt Talent Joins Epic as Senior Account Executive

PLSN Staff • News • March 13, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Epic Production Technologies has named Matt Talent as senior account executive. Marc Raymond, chairman and CEO, said he and his partners are “thrilled” to have Talent join the company. “Our Los Angeles operation (formerly Ed & Ted’s) had a great reputation for corporate and special events work even though it was historically best known in the concert touring market,” Raymond said. “Matt will be instrumental in raising our profile in the event market where he will continue to deliver the outstanding service he is so well known for.”

Talent said he was excited to hear of the Ed & Ted’s/Q1 merger, having had great respect for both companies in all areas of the lighting business, and sees his move as a great opportunity to expand his own experience and career goals under the newly formed Epic umbrella.

Talent began his career in the early 1990s working in both corporate and concert lighting before joining T2K in 1993. There, he spent five years honing his skills in programming, set-up and designing shows with the first generation of moving lights.

With a particular interest in corporate and special events, Matt joined the Matthews Studio Group before moving on to an eight-year tenure at ELS where he became director of production rentals.
