Sr. Product Manager
With nearly 20 years of hands-on, lighting industry experience, Ford Sellers is senior product development manager for CHAUVET Professional as well as three other brands under the Chauvet umbrella. After studying lighting design at Syracuse University, he began his career installing lighting for the groundbreaking show “EFX”, starring Michael Crawford, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
While in Las Vegas, Sellers worked as a trade show electrician and then as the assistant lighting director for the MGM Grand Conference Center. From there, Sellers became a master electrician for Cornell University’s Department of Theatre, Film and Dance. For nearly a decade he taught lighting technology, the mechanics of light, and designed the lights for several of the 11 productions and plays produced for the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts each season.
Sellers’ move to CHAUVET® marked his arrival to the manufacturing side of the lighting industry where his knowledge and experience focuses on the development of new fixtures and educational outreach programs.
