Brock Lumsden

Owner, President, Grand Poobah

Brock is the visionary (maniac) who started BLD – now BOLD Event Creative .  His diverse background designing theatre, events, exhibits, television, retail stores, costumes, opening ceremonies, and brand activations all led him to found a company that does so many different things. (ask the staff,  it’s his fault).   He continues to push his boundaries (and the boundaries of his staff), dreaming up the next way to expand, diversify, grow or alter the business in thoughtful and positive ways.  (Who says ADD is a bad thing?)   Most of all, he tries to constantly upgrade and increase the levels of service offered to his clients; to serve them and impress them in new and exciting ways.

Fun facts about

Brock learned he should be a designer by taking an intensive aptitude test when he was 22.

His largest project had over 11000 costumes, 9000 props, and 6000 performers.

Brock loves to sail and can be seen in summer months cruising the Gulf Islands in his very un-fancy 1974 Catalina 27 .
