Aurora Strengthens Project Management Line Up

News Image
Television and entertainment lighting rental specialists Aurora have announced the addition of Joe Marter to their Project Management Team.

Having spent a number of years at Aurora in the role of Equipment Co-ordinator, responsible for the preparation and maintenance of a huge variety of lighting equipment, Joe brings with him a unique industry perspective and a serious understanding of the Company's product range.

With additional experience gained through his time as Technical Manager with London Light, the transition to Project Manager allows Joe to capitalise on a considerable knowledge of all aspects of entertainment lighting to support and service productions at the very highest level.

On shifting roles within the company Mr Marter said: "It's incredibly exciting to be taking on a new role within a company that I understand so well - I've worked as part of the Aurora team for several years, so I know exactly how we operate and, more importantly, I know exactly what Production expects from us."

Moving within the Aurora ranks means that Joe has been able to settle into his new role relatively quickly, having already presided over a variety of high profile projects including Love Island, Would I Lie to You and Aurora's largest logistics challenge to date, Can't Touch This.

Commenting on the appointment, VER European Sales Director Adrian Offord also said: "We're delighted that Joe has chosen to make the move internally. Expanding the Aurora project management team will obviously enhance our service - however, with his in-depth equipment knowledge and industry understanding, recruiting Joe from within brings an even greater strength to the team."
