Chris Prosio has joined Leyard and Planar as general manager for its rental and staging division.

Prosio has more than 30 years of experience in live events and communications, including roles in sales, product management, event production management and video system engineering. He joins Leyard and Planar from Absen where he was director of rental and staging. He has also held a number of roles at Barco. 

Adam Schmidt, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Leyard and Planar, said: “Chris joins the team with a wealth of knowledge about the AV industry that is strengthened by hands-on experience in corporate and entertainment events. Leyard and Planar continue to accommodate our customers’ needs for rental and staging environments and Chris’ expertise will allow us to stay one step ahead as a leader in the space.”  

Prosio said: “In the end, I understand that our product represents more than a display. It represents a partnership. Every piece that we design into a solution should enhance the experience for all parties involved, starting with the technician who sets it up to the person sitting in the front row. I look forward to extending this approach to support Leyard and Planar’s customers.”
