ACC Liverpool has made five new appointments in its production and technical department, taking the team to 19.
Rich Neale has joined as Production Manager for Entertainment and Sport. He joins from Saville Audio Visual where he was conference and live events manager for six years.
Tom Kaye has been recruited as Senior Rigging Technician, while Greg Chapman, Anthony Cowley and Mark Anderson join as Production Technicians. Their roles include preparing, installing, operating and dismantling of production equipment from small conference breakouts to large scale arena set-ups.
The department has provided a series of in-house productions for conferences this year such as NHS Confederation, the British Association of Urological Surgeons and Accelerate 2014. The National Cancer Research Institute in November is among forthcoming productions.
In addition to the new recruits, ACC Liverpool has invested £250,000 in technical equipment including new LED lighting through the galleria, high definition projectors and switchers in the auditorium and meeting rooms, and an infrared-assisted listening system.
“We have gradually been expanding our department since the venue opened in 2008 and are pleased to now have a team of 19 skilled technicians and production managers,” says Nicky Norman, Senior Production and Technical Manager. “As well as our recruitment plan we are continually investing in new equipment.”
