Robe hire top USA LX visionary

Robe have added possibly the top mover and shaker in the USA lighting biz, Bob Schacherl. Formerly Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Philips Entertainment (Vari-Lite) and before that the President at High End Systems, Bob knows where all the (metaphorical) bodies are buried.

Robe lighting, based in the amazing Euro success story nation Czech Republic, just appointed Bob Schacherl as CEO of its US based operation, Robe lighting Inc.

Bob Schacherl’s legendary status in the moving light industry needs no introduction – although CX just did that.

A very high profile career has seen him work with those leading brands in the lighting field spanning the last 28 years – and obviously he will take this forward with Robe, as the company attempts to position itself for further expansion and the strengthening of all its global markets throughout 2014.

CX has enjoyed many seasons with Bob, and know that any firm which invests in human I.P. can do do very in our crazy, upside down industry!
