In June of 1994, Randy Goodwin founded a company that would allow him to imagine, create, and produce memorable events. His determination and two $5,000 bank loans enabled him to open what is known today as PRI Productions, one of the largest and most reputable, full-service event production companies in the southeastern United States – offering a full spectrum of creative planning and design services for every stage of production – from concept development all the way through to program evaluation.
As President and CEO, Goodwin has personally led the charge for advancing the PRI Productions brand throughout the southeast. In his mind, key to the success of PRI Productions to date has been its core business principle of always providing clients with realistic and achievable methods of not only meeting but exceeding their goals. The company has successfully produced some of the most celebrated marketing campaigns, brand touchpoints and stand-alone events for a broad range of clientele in the corporate, incentive and association markets, and continues to be recognized for its high level of service and client satisfaction.
PRI Productions has received numerous awards through the years including being recognized by Visit Jacksonville as “Partner of the Year,” being honored as “Event Producer of the Year” at the Annual Gala of Special Events Magazine, one of the most prestigious awards in the industry, and earning the “Best Achievement in Logistics” from Event Solutions Magazine.
Goodwin is a past recipient of Jacksonville’s Small Business Leader of the Year Award, a two-time recipient of the Cornerstone Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Growth and Corporate Citizenship, and is a proud alumnus of Leadership Jacksonville’s Class of 2001.
