Rental Manager

Russ Smith is the Rental Manager at Sight & Sound Productions and joined the team in 2012.

As Rental Manager, Russ manages the AV rental team and department. He works directly with our project managers and rental coordinators to ensure that our clients’ needs and schedules are being attended to, and that they’re receiving the best and appropriate equipment for the job. To Russ, accomplishment isn’t measured through baubles sold or baubles built, but sees his greatest accomplishment as earning the respect and trust of his employees, co-workers, peers and clients.

Outside of work, Russ enjoys preparing his son for the impending zombie apocalypse. All jokes aside, he loves live entertainment and attending concerts and shows, traveling, mixed martial arts and wrestling. Russ is also no stranger to the kitchen and enjoys cooking and most importantly, whiskey.

Russ describes himself in three words: authentic, dependable, creative
