Event services company founder ends exceptional career
ATLANTA – July 21, 2017 – ON Services, a GES company and leading full-service audio visual provider supporting live event productions, announced the retirement of Stan Milner president of ON Services.
As the founder of Tech Rentals, Inc., in 1985, Milner recognized an opportunity to provide high-quality, high-touch audio-visual services to clients. Over the next 30 years, Milner grew the company from a high-end broadcast rental provider to a full-service audio visual company. In 2009 Milner expanded the company’s offerings, geographic reach and quality of service with the first of five acquisitions – The Production Solutions Group, followed by ProStage, A&V Company, Staging Directions, and Data Display. In 2013, Milner rebranded this group to ON Event Services.
ON Event Services specialized in live event staging and exhibitions, supporting more than 1,000 live events annually with production support services, including audio, video, lighting, scenic design and fabrication. In addition, the business produced high-end entertainment events and is the preferred in-house provider of audio-visual services for more than 30 venues, including hotels, arenas and convention centers. Milner continued to grow the business and lead its team, enabling the successful acquisition by GES in 2016, and the company was rebranded ON Services, a GES company.
“I’d like to thank Stan for his continued dedication to the business, and congratulate him on his well-deserved retirement,” said GES President Steve Moster. “From founding the company to his more than 30 years leading the business, Stan grew ON Services into a top U.S. full-service audio visual production company for live events.”
“I want to thank Steve for this opportunity,” said Milner. “It has been a real pleasure working with and getting to know some of the brightest and most talented people in this industry. GES is a world-class organization that I am proud to have been a part of. I am excited and look forward to the heights they take ON Services in the years to come.”
Milner will retire on July 28, 2017.
