Theater/cruise veteran Jeff Moulton joins Adirondack Studios

Jeff Moulton's extensive experience made him a natural fit for his new role at ADKS
Global design, fabrication and project management leader Adirondack Studios (ADKS) tapped theater and cruise veteran Jeff Moulton as VP project delivery.

In this executive leadership role, Moulton will serve as one of the studio’s primary client liaisons, ensuring that all ADKS projects reach completion on time, on budget and with the level of quality that's the Argyle, New York-based company’s trademark and standard.

He also will help drive ADKS’ overall growth strategy, support business development and marketing activities, implement project management protocols and metrics and streamline operations across the company’s various working groups.

RWS Global and Holland America Line experience

Moulton has worked in arts and entertainment for nearly 20 years. He fostered the development of RWS Global’s Theatrical Ventures & Ticketed Experiences division pre-pandemic then helped to usher the Tony Award-winning Eugene O’Neill Theater Center out of its pandemic closure, overseeing special projects, new initiatives and events.

In 2022, Moulton returned to RWS Global as director of client delivery for its Holland America Line division. He oversaw a global entertainment operation that cast, trained, costumed and managed hundreds of performers each year across HAL's global fleet.

Moulton also supervised the development and debut of 12 new theatrical shows and products in just two years, while simultaneously overseeing dozens of additional productions and hundreds of unique and curated musical programs fleet-wide.

His leadership efforts helped stabilize the department’s operations, rebuild the shoreside team and increase revenue while simultaneously elevating the guest, talent and client experience. 

A natural fit for ADKS

According to ADKS President Michael Blau, Moulton’s extensive experience made him a natural fit for his new role.

'For this position, our diverse hiring committee was looking for four things: process knowledge, systems integration experience, empathetic leadership and excellent communication skills. Jeff ticked all of those boxes and then some,' Blau said. 'I can’t wait to see how he streamlines our client delivery functions while fostering a supportive, collaborative environment for our team.

'I’m also excited about his experience in the cruise industry as we continue to spread our reach into new markets. Of course, his theater pedigree fits right in with our company culture.'

2024 project openings

ADKS project openings year-to-date including Level 99 Providence, Meryal Waterpark, Google at St. John’s Terminal, the Pineapple Clock at Atlantis The Royal Dubai, the Hershey Lodge Smokestacks and the Dell Alienware Rejuvenation Pod at SXSW Festival. Upcoming projects include retail outlets, brand destinations, performance venues, opera sets, theme park lands and children’s experiences across the US and around the world.

For his part, Moulton said: 'The incredible quality of the artistry here speaks for itself, but by so highly valuing their people they also drive much higher value in the final product. I’m looking forward to further elevating our production processes, delivering world-class product for guests around the globe and providing extremely high-touch client relations as ADKS continues to grow into the future.'

At Seatrade Cruise Global

Moulton and other members of the Adirondack Studios team will be at Seatrade Cruise Global April 9-11.
