Senior Account Executive
An entrepreneurial free spirit, Keith says owning several businesses before joining our team at Apollo MFG, has enhanced his appreciation of the company’s growth “from a dozen employees in a small, rented space to a well-staffed, mature corporation serving the world from its third facility.” Keith feels his years as an ornamental blacksmith turned machine shop owner prepared him to face challenges “with imagination, gusto and perseverance.” He is especially proud of the company’s multiple Dealers’ Choice Customer Service awards from the Entertainment Services and Technology Association (ESTA). It was presented to Apollo MFG from 1999 through 2006, every year it was available.
Keith does not rest on his laurels, however, on the job or raising his family. “I’ve been blessed with a loving wife and two awesome daughters, reminding me each day there are no dull moments,” he says. “We’ve been active in 4H, Girl Scouts, youth groups and mission trips with our church, high school marching, jazz and pep bands, winter drum line and theater.” He also enjoys hunting, fishing, metal detecting, wine making, historical reenactments and volunteering within the music and theater arts department at his local high school.
Holder of a associate’s degree in English from Indiana-Purdue University at Fort Wayne, Keith has been informally recognized as one of “the MacGyvers” of the entertainment lighting industry, helping create the magic behind concert performances, theme park rides and even the Olympic Games.
