Award-winning firm ramps up capabilities based on recent growth Elk Grove Village — In response to its recent growth, award winning exhibit and event design, fabrication and management agency 3D Exhibits has added industry veteran Jeff Bartle. Bartle fills the newly created position of Chief Creative Officer. In this position, Bartle will grow 3D Exhibits’ design muscle and implement creative strategies that will keep the 3D Exhibits design team on the cutting edge of experiential design. “Jeff has been tasked with leading our design department into the future,” says Gene Faut, president of 3D Exhibits. During Bartle’s 30-plus years of industry experience, he has designed exhibits, events, conferences/meetings, retail environments, mobile experiences, museums, briefing centers and proprietary events. He has held executive positions at industry firms including George P. Johnson, Contempo Design, EWI, Chicago Scenic. Most recently, he had his own firm: JLB Creative, Inc. “The opportunity to work with the 3D Exhibits team on a daily basis was too good to turn down,” says Bartle. Bartle praises 3D Exhibits for its aggressive and progressive approach to business, vision and long-term relationships with its clients. Bartle will be based in 3D Exhibits’ Chicago headquarters.
