Lifeboat Events restructures, Zigmont leaves

Published September 12, 2012

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA (BRAIN) — Lifeboat Events, the organizer of DealerCamp and PressCamp, is restructuring its management team, a process that included the departure of Lifeboat's communication director, Chris Zigmont.

"After completing its third year Lifeboat Events finds itself with an imbalance in veteran management level employees and the capital to reinvest into the brands moving forward, hence a full-time communications position led by an experienced business partner cannot be afforded. Although Chris' creativity, energy and passion will be missed, we are confident in our ability to meet the needs of the industry moving forward," said Lifeboat Events president Lance Camisasca.

Zigmont remains a partner in Lifeboat and appears to be leaving on good terms.

"It was fun while it lasted," he said. "I am extremely proud of the events we created on my watch. I support Lance and the team in their efforts to continue, meanwhile it is time for me to open my next chapter." 

Zigmont was a part owner of Lifeboat, along with Camisasca and Chad Battistone, who is Lifeboat's director of operations. Camasasca and Battistone work out of home offices in Southern California, while Zigmont worked from his home in New Hampshire.
