Eric began working with SGPS, Showrig, Inc. in September of 2012 soon after the New Orleans branch was opened. Originally hired as the Operations Manager, he helped design and organize the warehouse as the New Orleans office expanded its production support to include many blockbuster films and internationally renowned New Orleans music festivals. He started in the industry in 1998 working with local staging companies until Hurricane Katrina inspired an adventurous temporary relocation to Las Vegas for all of 2006. In 2007 he and his wife returned home to help rebuild the “city that care forgot” and to start their family. Today, as General Manager, he places the highest priority on customer care, reminding his team daily of the importance of empathy, respect and accountability to others when building and maintaining personal and professional relationships.
