In accordance with Diablo Sound’s recent growth, Fionnegan Murphy – previously a Senior Project Manager – has taken on the position of Vice President of Design.

Murphy states: “Diablo Sound believes that our clients deserve reliability and simplicity. We are hired to solve problems in some form or another. As VP of Design I have the pleasure of ensuring not only consistent quality in our designs, but I will also reinforce the positive, problem-­‐solving attitude that has been the core of our reputation from the beginning. By creating the templates our designers will use in the field, and providing training and support to those designers, I can ensure that our contractors have the time and energy to remain flexible to any changes that occur on the job site.”

This will be Murphy’s 11th year with Halloween Horror Nights.
