Jeff

Jeff Parry

Position: CEO – Jack of All Trades and Master of None

Bio: Jeff started promoting shows in small towns throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan in 1980. Eventually he saw an opportunity to produce top of the line tribute experiences and has grown Annerin Productions over the years to being an international business having produced shows on The West End and Broadway – a long way from driving a Ford Topez to gigs in Estevan, SK. Jeff loves music as well as playing hockey, golf, hot yoga and bike riding. The best part about this business for Jeff is watching an audience react to something he’s helped created, knowing that you are taking them out of their day to day lives for 3 hours.

Jeff’s favorite song: Jeff doesn’t necessarily have a favrorite song but he always wants to listen to the Beatles though.

Scott Christensen

Position: General Manager

If someone had told Scott he would be where he is now career wise he never would have believed them. The reason being is he passed on an art scholarship right out of high school and ran off with a rock band to play drums….the journey after many nights playing bars, living out of buses and hotel rooms lead him right to Annerin’s door.

Scott has been working at Annerin Productions for just about 12 Years. He started off with Annerin on the road as a fill in drummer with one of Annerin’s productions which eventually lead him to Road Manager / Stage Manager, and Creative director with numerous productions.

Scott now holds a position as General Manager of Annerin. Annerin has given him the opportunity to be on a team that creates unique, entertaining successful productions touring world-wide.

In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family and friends reliving old memories and making new ones.

Scott’s favourite song: Scott is a true music lover liking all styles and genres of Music. Anything with a great pocket and feel.

Cheryl

Position: Controller

Bio: Cheryl was attracted to Annerin Productions because it’s a small family run company. She is Annerin’s newest team member and says she’s learning a lot!

Cheryl is the mom to two human sons and two cats, it’s always a bit of toss up as to which set she loves more! When I am not at work I spend most of my time with my family, and I love to garden. Cheryl thinks the best part of her job is being part of a close knit diverse group of people.

Cheryl’s favorite song: Rolling In The Deep by Adele

Anna

Anna Parry

Position: Production Coordinator

Anna is very excited about working in such a diverse field from the Oil and Gas industry which seems to overrun Calgary at times. Having been surrounded by music her entire life by her Beatle loving dad, it only seems natural to pursue a career in the music industry.  Anna is quickly learning the ins and outs of the production side of things, which brings so many people joy when they escape from their regular lives and get to experience a few hours of entertainment.  Anna is mostly excited about working on the newest Annerin production Rock The Nation which allows her to combine her patriotic side with her passion for music and making people smile.  In her spare time Anna enjoys any outdoor activities, hanging out with friends, going to movies and of course going to concerts!

Anna’s favorite song: Growing up in a house hold where Brian Epstein brought her parents together it has to be a Beatles song!  Here Comes The Sun.
