Michael Cannon, Chairman
Michael Cannon began his career in the lighting industry at Bash Theatrical Lighting while still in high school. After graduating from Boston University, Michael returned to Bash and assumed the role of Vice President of Operations before leaving to create 4Wall Entertainment.
In addition to his degree from Boston University's School of Management, Michael holds advanced certifications in negotiations from Harvard University and in mergers and acquisitions from UCLA.
Michael and his founding partner Bill Lairamore opened the first 4Wall location in 1999 in Las Vegas. Their concept was a lighting company that would focus on customer service while providing top notch equipment. The slogan "Large Enough to Service, Small Enough to Care" has shaped 4Wall ever since.
In 2002 Michael expanded his vision of what 4Wall could provide to the east coast, opening 4Wall New York. Over the next ten years the location would become the largest in the company. The success in Las Vegas and New York led the company to further establish itself with locations in Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Nashville.
In addition to the physical locations, Michael created an e-commerce presence for the company with UsedLighting.com and NewLighting.com; now two of the largest sites in the world to focus solely on selling quality used entertainment and event equipment.
As Chairman of the 4Wall family of companies, Michael remains focused daily on the original 4Wall ideal of being "Small Enough to Care", fostering relationships with employees, customers, and vendors that go beyond simply doing business.
