who we are
From musicians and fashion fiends, to 4-wheeling junkies and video game geniuses, we spend a lot of time together creating some of the most distinctive interactive branding and marketing campaigns around.
When he’s not at home playing FIFA and drinking a delicious unfiltered wheat beer, he’s here at work trying to organize our vast warehouse in the hopes that one day it will achieve Nirvana. He also proudly “slays the mythical beasts that constantly plague the nightmare of those unworthy to face him”… we’re pretty sure that’s a Skyrim reference.
His torso and arm length combined are longer than most people’s entire bodies.
He’s a lifelong supporter of Manchester United!
His hands are the size of regulation ultimate discs.
Anthony’s one of our multi-disciplined Project Managers, and a good one too. He claims his ability to keep things running smoothly around here is the careful manipulation of surrounding magnetic fields. Besides telekinesis he’s pretty clever with a dry sense of humor, and can be found enjoying a craft beer and/or on Colorado biking trails over the weekends.
Brian “Hooch” Houchin comes to us all the way from Kansas City, KS and has one of the largest dogs in the whole office, a beautiful great dane named Jessie (who never leaves his side). Brian’s personality and talents, paired with his humor, make him ideal for traveling anywhere he’s needed to set up our work and interact with our clients. Fortunately, this gives him the opportunity to be the handsome “face” of Proctor! That’s also two Brians, for anyone who’s counting.
Chris Montigne’s proficient technical skills and love for all things design led him to his future in industrial design over 16 years ago, and since then he has worked as a creative director, exhibit & environmental designer, industrial designer, process manager, fabricator, and creative storyteller for high-profile brands in many industries. His leadership and tenured contributions in the design community manifest through his passion for design, technology, public speaking about the power of creativity, and all this continues to be a high reflection of his work. Always inspiring those around him to think creatively, seek solutions instead of dwell on problems, and be completely dedicated to whatever is done, he continues to work hard at being passionate, most of all. Having been creative all his life, he still holds true to the philosophy that anything worth doing right requires more time, and continues to champion design every day to manifest how it can be the medium for people’s valuable experiences.
Chris has worked with innovative and award-winning brands and their experiential campaigns on a national level spanning over a decade, which include: Adidas, Toyota, Ford, Sony, AT&T, Verizon, Microsoft, Budweiser, Google, Uber, and Jim Beam.
Cody is a graphic designer by day and abstract expressionist by night. When he is not building a better world through type and CMYK, he is breaking down the boundaries of space and time by spreading his perspective through his lifelong work on canvas. All things print cross Cody’s desk here at Proctor, and he can be your best friend if resolution supports, or your worst enemy when fonts are not included. Either way, on weekends you will find him deep in the mountains, or lost in his headphones at home in his studio. Cody’s dream is to live for ever through the influence of his art, and as a constructive and infinite wave of causality.
The largest mammalian carnivore that ever lived on land was the giant short-faced bear. Twice the size of the biggest modern bear, it was 6' 5" tall at the shoulder.
The average color of the Universe is beige. Scientists call the specific shade off beige "Cosmic Latte", which has a hexadecimal RGB value of #FFF8E7.
Danny Fuller is another implant from Kansas City, KS., and we’re grateful he’s here. As our Warehouse Manager, he ensures every job that comes through the warehouse is done correctly and on time. Never afraid to shake things up, he’s always looking for different ways to increase productivity and efficiency in the warehouse. When he’s not here running the show, he’s at home being a loving husband and father with his family, including their black lab Baby and bichon poodle Isabel.
He is a die hard Kansas Jayhawk and Kansas City Chiefs fan.
He is an avid hunter.
He participates in No-Shave November all year round.
Born and raised in southern California, Dan worked in Hollywood for 14 years doing post production. He was a motion picture negative cutter. When films went digital he decided to leave California for Colorado. 11 years later he finds himself a welder for Proctor Productions. For leisure, he builds hot rods, motor cycles, and furniture.
Born in Oxfordshire, England, Debbie is our boisterous VP of Finance and the Controller of everything here at Proctor; literally, everything. She was an Air Force brat who traveled the country until high school, then settled here in Colorado. She can’t live without her two boxers and one yellow lab, Frankie, Zootie and Sophie and loves Mustangs and country music. She’s been proudly married for 36 years, and has 4 sons, 2 step sons, 1 step daughter, 4 granddaughters, 3 grandsons, 1 great-granddaughter and 2 great-grandsons (whew!)
Known to all of us as “Dougie,” Doug’s great work ethic and belief in a positive work environment makes him a perfect fit on the Proctor team. Doug is seen all over Denver making moves for all sorts of projects, always with a smile and a good attitude, and we couldn’t keep the wheels churning without his efforts. After a good weeks worth of work, Doug enjoys a long drive to the mountains with his family. A true Broncos fan at heart, this guy bleeds blue and orange. Dougie is known for his love of old school music.
Doug prioritizes free time with his kids and family at #1.
He fly fishes to relax after the work week, and only goes with his son or alone.
Personable as ever, he loves to go downtown to talk to people and window shop.
James Reedy is a native of Colorado, who attended Thomas Jefferson High School and graduated from Metro State. He has been in the trade show business for 13 years doing everything under the sun. He love this industry because of all of the creative ideas and experiential builds that that are possible. When not working his passions include taking advantage of our great outdoors with rafting and camping, playing any sport he can, and, well, after that you gatta eat!! He loves all foods and there’s not much that he wont eat, DIBS! GO CUBS!!!
Josh brings a diverse skill set to his job here as a fabricator at Proctor. Don’t let his boyish charm and dashing good looks fool you, he has decades of creative building experience in construction, fine woodworking, and art. Outside of work Josh is a Denver based artist specializing in mixed media sculpture, incorporating ceramic, wood, and cast bronze, as well as found objects and up-cycled materials. His artwork can be seen in a number of galleries locally and at www.joshdavy.com.
Have you ever heard that saying, "He puts his pants on one leg at a time just like everybody else?"
Josh learned to put his pants on both legs at once to use as a personal selling point.
He put it on his resume under "special skills," right below guitar building and above excellent grammar. I think it might be on his business cards.
It’s almost Friday every day with Bear, our master carpenter. He’s been one of Proctor’s lead fabricators for almost two decades, and been in the industry of building exhibits even longer. Always down for a game of ping pong or horse, he’s an essential part of our shop. Always thinking with a pencil and paper first, he habitually takes the time to make sure whatever he’s doing is done right.
He's not from around here.
He's actively involved in his culture.
You'll never hear him brag, but he's a knowledgeable sports fan.
Jessica loves Denver, dining, and Dogs! Its no surprise that she works with a lot of local pet and food companies. She considers herself lucky that she gets to do two things she’s most passionate about: event planning and traveling! All the coordinating beforehand is her jam, and she enjoys that more than the events themselves. Jess loves the excitement of getting to go to new cities and learn about new and interesting businesses. When she’s home she loves to explore new trails and restaurants with her dog Arthur.
The last time she was in Jamaica she won a dance contest.
To get balanced she likes to get unbalanced by going to yoga or drinking wine with friends.
Every year Jessica runs a team of Proctor pooches at the Furry Scurry to raise money for the Dumb Friends League.
Jim the crafty veteran boasts 25 years in the tradeshow business still loves it. Weekends might find Jim camping and off-roading in the mountains with his best friend and wife of 29 years, Tammy. If not, he is typically on his Harley trying to get lost.
Josh is another of our talented fabricators; if we can design it, he can build it. His ability to improvise adapt, and overcome make him a great component of Proctor. He believes wholeheartedly that for every feeling there is a suitable song, and lists sleeping in dumpsters with kings as past experiences.
He loves his two kids, a boy and a girl, and they are cuter than your kids.
When he lived in New York City, he worked on stage sets for Wicked The Musical on Broadway.
Justin fits in nicely with the Proctor culture. JP is a Colorado native who came to Proctor by way of Media sales, and his 16 years of experience in Radio, TV, Digital Media and sales management sets him up perfectly to be our Director of Business Development. He works hand in hand with marketing and sales to identify strategic partnerships and grow company goals. He is a single father of his two children, Aiden & Josephine, and he enjoys coaching their league sport teams, mountain biking, camping, and snowboarding. When asked what his favorite Colorado activity is, he’ll respond immediately with: “sittin’ by a campfire in the mountains under the stars sippin’ whiskey and listening to bluegrass!”
He was in a home explosion at a young age.
When dancing, his signature move is the moonwalk.
He’s currently writing his autobiography titled: The Yes Man Who Said No.
“Kovy” is our builder extraordinaire and uses his skills, knowledge, and experience to give our clients a product that’s attractive, functional, and durable. He has a special place in his heart for travel trailers and motorhomes, and feels he could live in one while driving our entire continent. God speed Keven!
Keven grew up in southern California on the beach until high school, then moved north to kick foot bag with the hippies in 1984.
He believes the best thing to do with ice is skate on it.
He has been a builder extraordinaire for almost 30 years.
A native of Indiana but a Colorado resident since 1999, Kyle has a passion for all things outdoors. From a weekend on the slopes to a day on the links, he regularly takes advantage of what the Colorado outdoors has to offer. With a degree in construction management, he also relishes the dynamic world of event production and tends to enjoy the pressure it brings. Working in the experiential marketing world since 2003, Kyle has helped to forge the experiential team at Proctor since joining in 2006. Whether you have a complex festival build or a straightforward exhibit booth, he works tirelessly to achieve above average results for his clients and their brands.
Leo, as you probably guessed, is the guy in our story who decided to make the trip across the country and never left CO. He has developed many strong professional relationships throughout the years, locally and nationally, enabling Proctor to remain successful for longer than some of our employees have been alive. Outside of Proctor’s walls, and inside for that matter, Leo enjoys the art of music. His taste ranges through the Grateful Dead, The Boss, Ryan Adams and Jackson Browne. He is a pretty laid back guy, which is mirrored by his favorite pair o’ shoes: timeless Converse All Stars.
From 1973 -1976 he raced in District 8 AMA professional motorcycle scrambles and motocross.
In 1976 he went to Negril, Jamaica to stay for as long as he could with only $300.00 in his pocket. He managed to live there for 3 months!
In 1981 he was asked to design and build his first trade show exhibit. That was the beginning of Proctor Productions and he still loves what he does every day.
Luke is a Colorado native that surfs powder and jibs rails for his winter fun time. He enjoys a good fixie stop, rockin’ the flow or the bro-bun, and future disco. Luke is a freelance inventor and product designer on the side, and loves entrepreneurial product ventures, of which he has been a part of two. He has a true passion for design, thinks with a pen, and strives for perfection to an obsessive point. He is a nerd for 3d printing, will tinker and take apart products more than he uses them, and point out ergonomic flaws in just about anything. Luke is the only raging sports fan in the design department and still plays ice hockey and pick up ultimate frisbee.
Luke launched his own LLC before graduating college called DeZION Colorado, with his first product: The Creation Station (a customizable case for iPads).
Competing against his student peers while in school, Luke was the National Merit Winner at the Art Institute of Colorado and represented his program at the 2011 IDSA Conference.
Before Proctor, Luke was self-employed as a freelance product design consultant for Giga Solar PV who crowdfunded a solar powered portable device charger named SolarGami.
‘Sparky Marky’ is Proctor’s Fabrication Manager and welding extraordinaire, but when he is not melding things together at crazy angles he takes advantage of Colorado’s great outdoors. Mark enjoys fly-fishing, hiking, but most importantly, 4-wheeling in his bad-to-the-bone Jeep Wrangler! His favorite colors are blue and orange…we will give you one guess why.
He has been professional diving for almost 30 years, and scuba'd in Hawaii, the Caribbean, Cozumel, and many other places in South America.
Everything he's ever done in his life has been wild.
He hates talking about himself in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd person.
When he’s not busting rhymes or beats in his head, he spends most of his time as the “starlord” of the portable exhibit department. The guy loves democracy. In his spare time he enjoys climbing mountains or supervising the shop in building his space ship. Once complete, he can fulfill his lifelong dream of visiting Matt Damon on Mars. #warehousepanda
There is no money in the banana stand. It burned down, get over it already.
You give me premature ventricular contractions
Also looking to start up my own petting zoo soon, so if you have any leads on the wardrobe to Narnia, hit me up, I'll be in the corner.
Another Kansas man from Basehor, he’s a steak, veggies, & mashed potatoes kind of guy. Michael’s another of our Project Managers and makes everything work together with all of the different opinions and ideas that float around here, keeping everyone involved happy and making sure projects leave our doors on time and looking good. He enjoys meeting new people, and hopes he makes a positive impact on each person he comes in contact with. Michael will travel around the world someday.
Loves riding and being around horses.
Always up for a new adventure, especially if it involves the wilderness.
Enjoys playing basketball and volleyball (doesn't hurt to be tall).
A Colorado native, Michelle is a country girl at heart. After graduating with a management degree, she couldn’t be happier to have found a carrier managing a diverse range of events. It’s common to hear her humming as she walks through the halls. After 12 years in choir, she loves all types of music. She’s an outdoor girl who loves to camp out next to the fire, and could surprise the best with her skills on the gun range.
You have two choices today, to be in a good mood or to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood.
Rock on and sign while you're doing it.
Michelle (The Beatles) has one cat named Roxanne (The Police). Future pets: Layla (Eric Clapton), Jude (The Beatles), and Delilah (Plain White T's)
Paschal’s the one playing an endless supply of constantly changing music in the warehouse; this DJ-ing is almost a side gig here, when he’s not rocking shipments and the forklift. His appreciation of music comes through all his interests, from going to local shows to snowboarding and playing frisbee golf. Maybe when he’s done with business school at MSU Denver he’ll finally get to wear a top hat.
After years as an architectural design & visualization business owner, Phillip moved to Colorado with his wife and daughter for the snow and the mountains. Equally comfortable programming Autocad as he is with an ice axe. He fills his days dreaming of living the dream. Oh, and biking. He does a lot of biking.
