USA - Employees from around the country convened at Bandit Lites Nashville location for the company’s annual general meeting.
A special celebration was held for Eric ‘Rock’ Shafferman, who has surpassed 40 years with Bandit Lites. Shafferman’s storied tenure at Bandit includes touring with Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Rogers and Alabama as well as working the Super Bowl, Bonnaroo, Farm Aid and President George W. Bush’s inauguration.
“I first met Rock in 1979 when he joined the Bandit family as a driver on Kenny Rogers,” said Bandit chair Michael T. Strickland, a longtime friend of Rock. “He quickly climbed the ladder and became one of the top lighting technicians in the industry. Everyone that knows Rock simply loves him. I have never heard Rock speak ill of anyone, and he has a work ethic and ability second to none.”
Craig Richter (lighting designer), Sarah Eucker (shop supervisor), Carter Fulghum (lighting designer), Nikki Dotson (lighting technician) and Andrew Fisher (senior systems integrator) were all honoured for five years with Bandit Lites while Steve Powell celebrated 20 years in a career that’s included project manager as well as serving as the general manager of multiple Bandit locations.
Strickland shared Bandit’s expansive new plans for 2020 including a robust sales initiative across the country and remodelling the Nashville shop to include an addition of over 80,000sq.ft of space.
“Bandit is in an explosive but controlled growth phase,” he said. “The quality of our people, our standards and our services are unmatched and the demand that has created reflects the fact we deliver excellence. The mantra for Bandit is to allow all of our clients to ‘experience excellence.’”
