Stewart Filmscreen has announced the appointment of three new executive team members: Michael A. Stadler, Rhonda Nelson and Todd Eddy.
Stewart's three new hires have assumed their roles, effective immediately:
- Michael A. Stadler: chief financial officer (CFO)
- Rhonda Nelson: director of marketing
- Todd Eddy: vice president of global commercial sales
The company says these hires will aid CEO and president Shannon Townley and the rest of the Stewart Filmscreen team in leading the organization into a new era of innovation and growth.
Stadler, a financial manager with expertise in business planning, staff development and financial reporting for a number of light industrial, construction and manufacturing companies, will help ensure profitability, managing all aspects of Stewart's financial growth and overseeing the accounting department.
“My family has been a part of the South Bay business community for four generations. It’s exciting to join a family-owned, family-operated business with such a rich legacy of excellence in Southern California and beyond,” says Stadler. “I look forward to steering Stewart Filmscreen through the Next Generation of growth and profitability worldwide.”
Nelson joins the team as director of marketing. Building brand marketing strategies and implementing those to drive growth and increase Stewart’s visibility, Nelson will utilize her extensive, 15-year marketing experience working with Fortune 500 accounts such as Ford, General Motors, and Proctor & Gamble, as well as PBS broadcaster Tavis Smiley.
Nelson comes to Stewart Filmscreen directly from Champion Sales, an international manufacturing, and supply company, where she provided strategic direction in the U.S and Europe.
“While I’m new to the AV industry, I welcome the challenge and opportunity. I’m excited to work with an iconic brand such as Stewart Filmscreen and look forward to using my marketing experience to brand and market the 'Next Generation,'” she says.
Eddy comes to Stewart Filmscreen from STEM Fuse, where he managed global sales and marketing for the educational resource provider specializing in developing web-based science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum. Eddy also brings a strong pedigree in the commercial A/V market.
Prior to his time at STEM Fuse, Eddy helped to manage and run a large sales team at Troxell Communications for several years as well as helping spearhead emerging market category development.
As part of his duties Eddy will focus on growing commercial business and related market segments worldwide. He will work closely with architects, consultants, and integrators to invigorate sales growth, manage commercial sales pricing programs and initiatives, and will support Stewart Filmscreen sales teams and offices in Torrance, Calif.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Denmark, and Singapore.
