Company Director

 

Ben Picture

Ben Teale Company Founder

Events Expert, Stage Designer

Ben has been around for ever, he started lighting aged 15 and has previously built and sold a similar business. Brief spells of his career included Litestructures and Stage Electrics but these only served to tell him he should be self-employed! Although Ben has a technical background with a BTEC and Degree in Electronic & Electrical Engineering, his passion has always been design. He mainly looks after new business development and creative design on most shows, but is just as comfortable sweeping the warehouse! Ben Believes completely in people and is amazingly proud of the team he has around him.. no man is an island!
