OUR SALES TEAM
Kevin Blevins | Business Manager
Kevin Blevins joined PGP after gaining more than 21 years of experience in the business world, but he has been a member of the PGP family since its beginning thanks to his close relationship with president and owner Troy Vollhoffer, a friendship that started in early childhood. In fact, Kevin grew up alongside Troy in the entertainment business, shunting road cases alongside Troy as a young stagehand before hauling spotlights around Western Canada for the fledgling company that would become PGP.
Scotty Chamryk | Vice President of Staging Sales & Accounts
Scotty has the honor of being the first official employee of PGP, joining the company full time in 1987. Previous to this, Scotty worked as a stagehand and rigger on local stage calls in his hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. He also gained valuable road experience working for American staging companies supervising stage builds. His skill with his hands and his ability to visualize, plan and execute, come from his father, who was an ironworker and bridge builder.
James Vollhoffer | Vice President of Lighting Sales & Accounts
During a 16-year road career, James traveled the world many times over and became the consummate “road dog”, working professionally and selflessly with dozens of big-name acts, some of whom include Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ozzy Osbourne, Tim McGraw and the Backstreet Boys.
Steven "Creech" Anderson | Senior Manager of Lighting Sales & Accounts
Steven’s production lighting career has spanned more than 30 years. Born in Fort Worth Texas and raised in Florida, Steven moved back to Texas and found himself working as a stagehand in the Dallas Fort Worth area, eventually landing his first gig with Showlites in 1984. It wasn’t long before he realized the important aspects of our industry. Gear was gear and customer service was paramount. Steven had the privilege to work on some of the largest tours in the industry and with some of the biggest artists: Metallica, Rush, Elton John, Bob Seger and Aerosmith.
Jamie Grossenkemper | Senior Manager of Staging Sales & Accounts
Jamie has been around the entertainment industry for over 15 years. He started his career in Topeka, Kansas working for various festivals and fairs around that state and the thrill of the show quickly got into his blood. Jamie knew he had to expand his horizons. He saw his chance when PGP offered him a position in 2001, and it has paid off for both him and our company in spades.
Merek Swaim | Mobile Staging Project Manager
Merek, who grew up in the southeast, brings with him 20 years of outdoor music festival experience to our staging division. Working as a promoter rep, site coordinator and even stage manager, Merek has helped to stage some of the biggest and most diverse musical festivals in America, including Memphis in May, so he knows the importance of seamless production.
Anthony "Geddy" Kordyjaka | Design Manager
PGP’s design manager for lighting is Anthony “Geddy” Kordyjaka, who has more than 29 years of experience in concert lighting. Under Geddy’s direction, every light, every cable and every lighting console is put to the test before it leaves our facility. Geddy also creates all the paperwork needed to wire and mark a touring concert lighting system, ensuring a trouble-free experience on the road. Geddy’s attention to detail on the front end saves our clients money in the long run and is a fundamental value of PGP’s service package.
