Rich Rowley joins Adlib as General Manager of Lighting and Video.
Rich brings more than a decade of his own senior management experience from working at two of the highest profile lighting and visual operations in the UK – XL Video and PRG.
Adlib is expanding, investing and poised to move into a new warehouse and office facility which will be ready soon. Rich will be concentrating on the already substantial lighting and video / AV aspects of Adlib as the company completes the transition from its original audio roots into one of the premier full-service technical solutions providers in Europe.
Adlib owner and founder Andy Dockerty explained: “I am delighted to welcome Rich into the Adlib family, I believe it is a testament to the growth of Adlib and the development of our lighting and video departments that we have secured the services of a character of Rich’s unquestionable status”.
With Rich coming on-board, Andy added: “Timing is great to spearhead further growth, offer more opportunities for those wanting a career in the industry and in ensuring that we can deliver to the same quality and excellence in all disciplines”.
Rich explained: “Andy and the other directors have carefully nurtured the Adlib brand with that in mind, they have applied the strongest ethics to their collective activities, and it’s always been a positive and inspirational working environment with room for people’s personal and professional growth”.
Rich’s task of increasing market share for the lighting and visuals side of the business and exploring global opportunities also coincides with a substantial investment in the last 12 months in Unilumin LED screen and other leading video product, together with around another £1 million in new moving lights and LED luminaires.
Rich is looking forward to collaborating with “the highly talented” management, technical, administration and logistical teams at Adlib, and engaging in a “long, fruitful and highly successful working relationship”.
