Kajikawa comes on board after a short stint at Video Equipment Rentals following a 13-year tenure as senior project manager of PSAV National Operations, where he was involved with many aspects of staging events, from pre-production and developing tech requirements for an event to installation and implementation, for a roster of top clients nationwide.

Now, he is eager to join WorldStage, he says. “WorldStage is a nationally recognized organization and the west coast operation is one of only a few teams that can execute the largest shows successfully while being fully capable of taking on smaller shows. I’m looking forward to being a part of that.”

A graduate of California State University/Long Beach, he previously served as technical director, chief video engineer and telecommunications administrator at Maritz Performance Improvement Company and as technical director/camera operator and corporate officer at The Hoppa Group, Inc.

He also developed technical training for studio operations for NBC and has designed and installed audio and video production and postproduction facilities and designed and implemented computer hardware and software for integration with video and presentations.
