Westview Productions, leading entertainment, energy, and immersive technology solutions firm, is thrilled to announce three additions to the team. Andrew Counts joins our team as field services manager, Bradley Cronenwett as project manager, and Maggie Hunter as the newest controls technician.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled with our expansion, but even more so that we have such acclaimed talent coming on board,” expressed Eric Bloom, president of Westview. “Andrew, Bradley, and Maggie all bring unique perspectives to the team and have already proven to be fundamental to Westview’s growth.”
Bradley Cronenwett brings over a decade of production experience in lighting and design, working with production companies in Orlando, including The Walt Disney Company. He also toured with Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna and VOLTA. Prior to Westview, Bradley worked at Universal Creative as an Assistant Technical Manager in Lighting for various upcoming projects. In his new role as a project manager, Bradley will ensure that all projects are delivered on-time, within the scope and budget. This includes coordinating internal resources and third parties, defining project scope and objectives, developing project plans, and measuring project performance.
Our new Controls Technician, Maggie Hunter, comes to us with vast knowledge in the theme park industry. Her experience includes working as an entertainment technician at SeaWorld, Orlando, and as an Events Technician at Universal Studios. At Westview, she will take part in implementation and programming of stage, performance, and energy systems, job site organization and site system layouts, and work with customers and end-users to develop action plans.
“We look forward to the immediate impact that Andrew, Bradley, and Maggie will have in building on Westview’s history of innovation,” said Eric Bloom. “We’re proud to have these strong leaders join Westview and bring such critical expertise to accelerate Westview’s continued growth.”
Andrew Counts now oversees Westview’s large scale, multi-faceted projects. He is responsible for supervising internal installation teams conducting the installations of rigging systems, audiovisual systems, lighting control systems, acoustical systems, and seating installations. A native from Ohio, the regional theater sparked his arts/entertainment career. His work experience ranges from Broadway, Rock and Roll, Country, Commercials, and even a few kids shows having various roles as Lighting Crew Chief, Head Rigger, Production Manager, and even a small stint carpenter. Before joining Westview, Andrew took a break from touring and settled in Florida to work as lighting director in the corporate world.
All three new hires are based in Westview’s Orlando office.
