NORTH CREEK - George B. Studnicky III, president of Creative Stage Lighting Co., Inc. and a 27-year resident of North Creek, has joined the board of the Hudson Headwaters Health Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that raises funds to support Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
"We are delighted that George had joined our Foundation Board," said John Rugge, M.D., CEO of Hudson Headwaters. "Creative Stage Lighting has been a staunch supporter of Hudson Headwaters, beginning with the renovation of the North Creek Health Center seven years ago. The Foundation will benefit greatly from George's experience as one of the region's most successful businessmen."
Studnicky founded Creative Stage Lighting in 1977 in Mount Arlington, NJ. In 1981, he relocated the business and his family to North Creek, NY. Since then, the company has grown into a nationally known manufacturer and wholesale lighting supplier. Its production division has lit stages for groups as widespread as Meat Loaf, Paul Anka, John Denver, Celtic Woman, Phish and Maroon 5.
