“In 2016, our company experienced its best year ever and the management team is a great foundation for future success and preservation of the legacy and reputation for the company,” states Weisberg who has enjoyed a 37-year history as a co-founder of WorldStage and prior to that Scharff Weisberg.  “This decision was made after much thought and consideration but I feel that stepping back from a leadership role at the company that has been home and family for the past 37 years is best for me at this time in my career,” Weisberg adds.

WorldStage Chairman & CEO, Gary Standard, co-founder of WorldStage and founder of Video Applications added, “The company has an exceptional management team, most of whom have been with our company for decades and who’s dedicated work and leadership have established WorldStage as an industry leader due to the quality of work we provide to our clients.”

Joining the management team is Guy Denniston who has been a consultant to WorldStage and its senior management for close to two years.  Guy has become the COO (Chief Operating Officer) of the company.

“All of us at WorldStage will continue to deliver the leading-edge technology with customer focused attention we are known for and look forward to continuing to work with Josh in his new role,” concluded Standard.
