Robby Kurtz


Robby found a love for production lighting when he started at a local company in Fresno, CA. From there he went on to concert touring, trade shows, corporate events, and working a few years at a TV network. Robby’s first experience working with a worship facility was at New Life Church, a mega church in Colorado Springs. Working at New Life opened opportunities for him to work freelance as a designer and operator for artists like Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe, Bethel Music, and others. As Rob’s kids were getting older he decided to make a change and took a position with his then lighting vendor, DPS which is now VER. The new role at VER allowed him to be on the other side of the client/vendor relationship and support his friends in the industry. Rob understands the challenges that church/ministry clients face, and enjoys finding solutions that best suit their needs. Robby is now a senior account executive for VER and offices in Nashville.

PIECE OF ADVICE: “Give people the benefit of the doubt, and be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry”
