After 18 years in the event rental industry, John Campanelli, CEO, InProduction, Chicago, and former leader of California-based Classic Party Rentals, has decided it is time to retire.
Campanelli’s last day at InProduction was Jan. 1, 2022. Jason Tedrow, InProduction’s president and chief operating officer, has now assumed the CEO role at the company.
For all the success he has garnered over the years, Campanelli admits that what he will miss most of his time in the industry is the people. “As I leave, it is the people and the clients I have worked with. That is what I will miss the most,” he says.
But as he retires to Florida to hone his golf game, he won’t completely leave the event world. “I will stay on several boards — by and large event rental company boards,” he says.
