CEAVCO Hosts the Rental and Staging Network (RSN) Warehouse Managers Forum

On July 10-11, the Rental and Staging Network (RSN) held its inaugural Warehouse Managers Forum. Warehouse and operations managers from RSN member companies gathered to exchange best practices and tricks of the trade. A total of 21 team members from 11 RSN companies attended.

CEAVCO Audio Visual hosted the forum at its office in Arvada, Colorado. Don Guzauckas, Jr., Vice President of RSN member company HB Live, acted as the facilitator. Topics covered included staffing, training, employee retention, storage and equipment handling, quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) processes, vendor management, and warehouse layouts and workflow.

Says Guzauckas, “The new Warehouse Managers Forum is a fantastic opportunity for warehouse and operations teams at member companies to share industry knowledge and learn from each other. Everyone’s getting a lot out of the energetic, productive conversation at this valuable gathering.”

Each year, RSN holds meetings, training sessions, and forums at member locations in diverse locations throughout the country. The first Warehouse Managers Forum was a great success, and attendees are already starting to plan their next collaborative forum.

Sad News About the Passing of CEAVCO Founder Jack Emerson

It’s with great sadness that we at CEAVCO Audio Visual share the news that CEAVCO’s founder, Jack Emerson, passed away on July 12 after a courageous five-month battle with cancer. He was 90.

Jack was a man of integrity and exacting standards who believed in service, accountability, and a job well done. He was also one of the warmest, most genuine, and most compassionate people you would ever meet.

Jack built CEAVCO in 1961 with the goals of creating a great workplace and providing exceptional customer support. He developed a lifelong reputation for honoring his vision and doing the right thing. He was immensely proud of CEAVCO, our team, our clients and partners, and the work we do.

Jack lived life with great passion and joy. This time last year, at age 89, Jack rode his bike 50+ miles a week and skied 30 days. Last year he also took his family to Sweden to visit the land where his great-grandparents farmed before emigrating to the United States.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jack’s wife, Ann Daley; to Jack’s children, Sara, Lisa, Nina, John, and CEAVCO President Matt Emerson; and to their entire family. We will miss him.

A service to celebrate Jack’s life will be held on Saturday, August 25, at 4pm at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Denver Hospice, the National Sports Center for the Disabled, or Grand Foundation.

A VIP Experience at Red Rocks Amphitheatre

This year, CEAVCO Audio Visual is once again a sponsor of Film on the Rocks at Colorado’s historic Red Rocks Amphitheater. The Denver Film Society is a valued partner of CEAVCO’s, and Red Rocks is one of the ultimate Colorado experiences.

Every summer, CEAVCO invites a few guests to join our team for a VIP experience at Red Rocks. On July 9, CEAVCO’s Pete Goetz and Brian Miller and their guests had a rare backstage tour complete with dinner backstage and VIP seating to watch The Big Lebowski. They even got to check out the hidden concrete tunnel beneath the stage, where thousands of famous performers have added their signatures to the narrow concrete walls.

“The Big Lebowski was amazing!” says Pete. “People dressed up in costumes and recited lines from the film. It was an experience to remember. If any meeting planners or producers are interested in joining us at an event, please reach out.”

Located in the foothills of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Red Rocks Amphitheater is one of the world’s most beautiful venues and is known for its acoustically perfect sound. The 19th annual Film on the Rocks series includes events throughout the summer featuring films, a live concert, and a set by a comedian courtesy of Comedy Works.
