Duke Energy Convention Center Welcomes New Director of AV Services

Cincinnati, OH – The Duke Energy Convention Center is pleased to welcome the new Director of AV Services for their preferred AV partner, Prestige AV & Creative Services.

Now in his 10th year with Prestige, Paul boasts an impressive resume, having national success with clients and live-production, spanning all market segments of the convention industry. His director-level hotel and convention center experience brings a unique blend of management skills and superior production execution, that continually provides clients with exceeded expectations.  Prior to this position, Paul was Director of AV Services at the Miami Beach Convention Center, another Global managed facility.

“I am very excited to continue fostering the relationship with the Global Spectrum family, in my hometown of Cincinnati,” said Paul. “I foresee my experience at the Duke Energy Convention Center to be very positive.”

The Center’s previous Director of AV Services, Jeremy Whalen, has accepted a promotion within the company.

The promotion from within proves that Prestige selects highly-qualified, hard-working candidates to be the face of their company.

“In my 28 years of facility management experience, I have found that Prestige is the best audio visual company to team-up and work with,” said Ric Booth, General Manager of the Duke Energy Convention Center. “The company is always ahead of the curve with new equipment and trends to enhance client’s experiences. I have had the pleasure to see Paul Ramstetter’s work and dedication, and I am very confident that he will continue to raise the bar here at the Center and continue to bring in a high level of service and quality to all of our clients.”
