DJ Zone, a leading mobile DJ industry website and online news service, has presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Berenice Chauvet, vice president of CHAUVET® DJ, Sunrise, Florida. The presentation, which took place at the 2014 Mobile Beat Show, marked only the second time in the 15-year history of the DJ Zone Awards that someone has been recognized with a Lifetime Achievement honor.
“Anyone who’s had the opportunity to know Berenice can’t help but be impressed with her intelligence, her passion for excellence and her giving nature,” said DJ Zone founder Sid Vanderpool. “There are not many women at the top of our industry; Berenice has blazed a path for future generations. She’s also been incredibly generous with her time; not just with women, but with everyone from newcomers to seasoned pros. Her vision and hard work has made this a better industry.”
A former journalist for the Miami Herald and Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, Chauvet entered the DJ industry in 2000 when she joined her husband Albert Chauvet in the company he founded. Together, she and Albert have guided their company along an impressive growth path as it introduced a series of groundbreaking products like the wireless Freedom Series™ as well as more recent innovations like the EZPin™ pin spot.
