Zach Wright ’12

Zach Wright ’12 is a Senior Technical Director at productionglue, a TAIT company.

With a career spanning television, concerts and music festivals, special events, sports, corporate, contemporary art, and trade shows, Zach has worked in almost every branch of the live events industry in the U.S. and abroad.

His responsibilities include leading and coordinating teams across large-scale projects and site builds, show advances, technical design, consulting, and long-term strategy.

Tasked with understanding and advocating for the needs of multiple stakeholders—including promoters, production departments and vendors, artists, television networks, venues, and municipal/government entities—Wright typically works as a hub for all key aspects of a project’s execution.

His work often departs from traditional technical entertainment needs, branching into civil work – such as building roads and helipads—working on and in historic buildings, new technology deployments, large-scale international freight, and developing workflows to suit the needs of specific projects and sites.

Most recent work includes the Soundstorm Music Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; All-Star Week, Global Games, and the 2019-2020 Season Restart for the NBA; The Governors Ball Music Festival; the Formula 1 After-Race Concert series in Jeddah; and South Park’s 25th Anniversary at Red Rocks.

Wright has also participated in multiple Guinness world records, including the world’s tallest stage, largest LED screen on a stage, tallest and most flames on a stage, and largest marquee-style tent and floor.

Notable past projects include:

  • Kendrick Lamar at Nike ASW
  • WeWork Creator Awards
  • Launch of Volvo’s first US Manufacturing Plant
  • World Chess Championship
  • Wal-Mart Associates Week
