Today we’d like to introduce you to Frank Gatto.
Frank, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Frank Gatto & Associates was incorporated in Miami Florida in 1980. Frank was the full time lighting director at tv station WTVJ in Miami since 1970. In 1987, Frank left WTVJ and began full time operations in Frank Gatto & Associates. Leaving WTVJ was a tough decision but once the choice was made the company was an instant success. Our first national client was ESPN. At the time, ESPN was a little known sports cable network just getting started. Kick boxing was the first show we did for them. The network quickly grew into the sports powerhouse it is today and we do the lighting for most of their major location shows such as College GameDay, the ACC Tournament and ESPN Bowl Games. Over time “on location” shows became our specialty. We also light Showtime Championship Boxing, Major League Baseball and UFC events as well as horse racing, soccer and other sporting events.
The company moved its headquarters to Boca Raton Florida in 1995. Today, we are a major lighting consulting firm serving all of America, the Caribbean, and Latin America and Europe.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Like any other company, we have experienced growing pains and have converted to all LED lighting for many of the shows we light as the industry has changed.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
