Daniella Judge

Business Development Director

Decades in marketing, across a wide variety of business channels, have proven effective preparation for Daniella’s role at Zoom.7. First, seventeen years in telecom, helping to launch and develop retail channels for Bell Atlantic Mobile, Primeco, and Verizon Wireless, led to local and national political work at a grassroots communications firm, then most recently, at Indaba Consulting as an independent marketing consultant. On top of all that, Daniella juggles a board position with Planned Parenthood of North Texas and a volunteer role in The Foundation for Women’s Resources, but as a University of Texas Longhorn, Class of ’90, she’s always ready to put over one more win.

David Schad

Production Manager

If it didn’t make David crack going from the heat of the south (BBA in Accounting, North Texas State University) to the cold of the north (MBA, the University of Alaska Anchorage), you can rest assured nothing will. He began in the entertainment industry in the mid ’70s, first as a lighting technician and later managing advance logistics for major U.S. concert tours. Now Zoom.7 leverages his skills at managing crews and budgets for associations, corporations, the entertainment industry, and direct sales companies.

Scott Thompson

Scott Thompson

President and Executive Producer

Maybe it was Scott’s beginnings in the rock-and-roll industry, added to degrees in Theatre and Communication from the University of Texas that early on instilled in him the importance of the “wow” factor. Now, after more than 25 years in event planning and production, every event he touches benefits not only from his extensive experience as an effective manager, but also from his highly refined creative sense. He’s travelled around the world, overseeing projects with audiences numbering into the tens of thousands, for clients like Mary Kay Inc., BeautiControl, Saladmaster, IGNITE, RBC Life, and The Pampered Chef.
