Green Hippo Adds Alex Kirby to Tech Team

Green Hippo is delighted to announce that it has recruited Alex Kirby to its London HQ. Alex joins as Junior Support Technician, bringing seven years’ experience working with All Safe and Sound, the AV solutions provider, as well as a technology degree earned at Northumbria University.

A self-confessed lover of technology, Alex’s previous responsibilities have covered client contact, running lighting and sound desks, and setting-up and de-rigging events. Green Hippo offers Alex the opportunity to build on these invaluable skills, working with the world’s leading real-time video technology.

On signing on the dotted line, Alex said: “I am looking forward to helping Green Hippo push the audio/visual industry boundaries, as well as working with all the talented staff here. I’m not the first person to move from one north London outfit to another, but, when it comes to video technology, I am definitely joining the league leaders.”
