Thomas Pope serves as CEO of Studio Displays; he is responsible for managing the daily operations, communicating with Studio’s internal team, and pushing the limits of Studio’s creativity and art direction. He’s proud to say he inherited some of his father’s artistic eye. Although he grew up working in the back of the shop, Thomas began his professional career with Studio Displays in sales and design. An industrial designer by formal training, Thomas knows the process by which the Studio team creates, designs, and produces each exhibit which has allowed him the opportunity to grow the depth and quality of Studio’s portfolio and talent.
Just like his father, Thomas is straight-forward and honest. What you see is what you get.
As President/COO of Studio Displays, Lori Pope Rosso is responsible for the strategic business development and operational enhancements that provide the highest quality value to clients. In her 18-year career with Studio, Lori has listened to and partnered with thousands of clients to strategize and create powerful projects. With Lori’s leadership, Studio has built a management team that works together to achieve the company’s vision while exceeding expectations for all involved. Lori continues to work toward enhancing product offerings and expanding product lines to stay ahead of the curve.
The oldest child of Studio’s founder Tom Pope, Lori comes by her humor and honesty naturally; she shoots it straight, and she’s known for her innate ability to be agile in high-pressure situations.
A natural, one-of-a-kind talent in design, art, and sculpture, Chris Pope started working on projects with his brother, Tom, in 1980. They worked together on any number of creative endeavors – from carpentry design to mall décor and Christmas exhibits; from animatronics to set construction for film; from sculpting to painting. Chris started working full-time for Studio Displays one week after his service in the U.S. Army in 1986. They continued the work he started with Tom even while he was in Colorado for a few years – adding in more, small projects for museums, commercial architectural elements for clients and large custom props. Anything that could be conceived was built.
Today, he manages Studio’s shop and continues working to keep his brother’s creative legacy alive.
