CHAUVET Professional Names Jean Lariviere Channel Relationship Manager

CHAUVET Professional has further strengthened its relationship to the lighting designer with the appointment of well-known industry figure, Jean Lariviere, as the company’s Channel Relationship Manager for Concert & Touring/Broadcast. Lariviere joins the company after serving for four years at Elation Professional in International Business Development and more than 25 years deeply embedded in the industry.

In his new position, Lariviere will be responsible for communicating directly with lighting designers and decision makers in the concert/touring and broadcast segments of the market.

“We view communication as a two-way street,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “We not only want to talk to customers about what we do, we also want to provide an open door that makes it easy for them to tell us about issues they care about. This has always been important, but never more so than today, as we emerge from the pandemic.

“Jean’s extensive experience and communications skills make him ideally suited for this position,” said Chauvet. “We are happy to welcome him to our team.”

For his part, Lariviere shares this enthusiasm. “I am beyond excited to join CHAUVET Professional,” he said. “Over the past six or seven years, the company’s presence has grown tremendously in the market, as it’s won over more and more customers and been in the forefront of new products and ideas. I am looking forward to building on this momentum and advancing the connection between CHAUVET Professional and the members of this industry.”

Lariviere began in his new position on April 1. He plans to be reaching out to designers and other members of the lighting community throughout the spring and summer.
