  2. 2. about pda production design associates has been serving the entertainment and production industry since 1991. pda began as a garage operation with very limited gear and a single delivery van. However, over the last decade our company has experienced consistent growth each year that has sent our crews all across the country. pda’s president, Jeff Nickles, attended the College of Charleston where he majored in theater with a focus on theatrical lighting and staging. because he has been able to work within his chosen field his entire professional career, he is able to provide clients with the value of his experience and creativity. We believe that pda’s success is a testament to the benefits of our hard work and leadership within our company and the community. pda has consistently been active in local fund-raisers and charities. We provide our clients with only the latest equipment and technology that this industry has to offer as well as the technical support needed for successful corporate or private events and presentations. pda was awarded the honor of providing our services at the 2005 presidential Inauguration in Washington, dC, and since has continued working with the White House on many of their events all over the country. pda also provided technical services for the 2004 G8 Summit in Sea Island, Georgia. additionally, pda was privileged to be active in the planning and the production of the events to celebrate the opening of the arthur Ravenel Jr. bridge, in which pda received international acclaim. pda also provided production for the CNN Youtube debates in 2007 and 2008. We believe strongly that continued success is based on our drive to develop long-lasting business relationships, in which communication is our key element. How can we help captivate your target audience?
