Our Story

The story of Leo Proctor and the beginning of Proctor Productions really starts with Leo wanting to leave New Jersey in 1978. He and a friend decided to move to Santa Barbara to be pool boys with the goal of living on a sailboat, so they took off from New Jersey in a 1956 GMC Ambulance that broke down in Colorado. They ended up sticking around Denver and staying with a cousin of Leo’s trading room and board for remodeling services – they ended up remodeling the whole house.

Founded somewhat accidentally, according to Leo, Proctor Productions came about through a relationship with International Custom Design in 1981. They asked him to build a tradeshow booth for the Denver Gift Show in less than a week, which he agreed to and managed to build the booth and set it up at the show himself. While Leo was breaking the booth down at the end of the show, he was approached by three other companies wanting booths as well – and Proctor Productions was born.

Through only word of mouth, Proctor Productions grew with exposure and diversified into the Ski, Medical & Pharma, and Automotive industries.

From 1981-1984 Proctor Productions employed 4-5 people and shared a space with Howie Eneson at 8025 E 40th Avenue. Leo was still handling all sales and design work. In 1984, Leo moved Proctor to 1039 Inca St, a 10,000 square foot space with 2 additional warehouses and there were 20 employees at this point. By 2001, Proctor outgrew the Inca space and Leo moved the company to its current location at 501 Raritan Way.

September 11, 2001 changed the industry. This change led Leo and the team to expand into the experiential marketing and mobile event space.

By 2003, the industry recovery had stabilized and our country was healing. Since then, Proctor has continued to grow and remain a strong presence in the industry. As of 2020, Proctor Productions employs almost 40 people people from Sales, Design and Account Management to Master Craftsmen.
