Montréal, July 20, 2021
Denis Lefrançois, President and CEO of SHOWSDT is pleased to announce that Nancy McNeil successfully guided the company through the Human Resources challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Her wealth of experience, having served in several senior leadership roles over the years with Solotech, Scapin and Show Distribution, allowed her to take on this daunting challenge with success. She will now be able to devote herself more fully to her role as Chief Operating Officer while maintaining her position of Director of Human Resources.
In her continued role as Chief Operating Officer, Nancy will oversee all aspects of SHOWSDT’s operations. Her familiarity with all the company’s business unit leadership teams and their strategies for growth will benefit the group’s continued development in Canada and the United States.
Mr. Lefrançois emphasizes that, “SHOWSDT is well positioned to continue on its path of consolidation of its current businesses and to pursue its growth through acquisitions in new markets and sectors. Nancy, a key player of our executive team, is ready to lead us through these exciting times when the entertainment sector is emerging from an exceedingly difficult period for both the rental and the sales divisions. The future is bright, and our team is ready for the challenges ahead.”
SHOWSDT is the leading company in Canada in the areas of rigging, automation, staging and soft goods. Led by Denis Lefrançois, a stage and entertainment industry professional with over 40 years of experience, SHOWSDT is an undisputed industry leader. Our strong partnership with the Culture and Communication Investment Fund gives us access to additional resources, ensuring successful future growth.
Our new corporate branding, SHOWSDT, was recently unveiled and Show Distribution and Scapin Staging merged under this banner to pursue a common goal. Since January 2021, Artotech Integration and JOEL Theatrical joined the company as well to offer a full range of services. SHOWSDT has more than 25 years of experience in the installation of either permanent or temporary structures and systems for the event industry.
In 2015, SHOWSDT added Niscon to its list of key partners, a company specializing in the design, engineering, and integration of motion control systems. Niscon developed the Raynok automation software, hailed by the industry for its ability to facilitate complex motorized maneuvers. In partnership with SHOWSDT, Niscon designed and introduced the Imperium model, a new generation of consoles.
