Noreen O'Riordan, Managing Director of Entec Sound & Light and Head of Lighting, has received the Outstanding Contribution Award at the TPi Awards 2017. The event took place on Monday 27 February at Battersea Evolution in London.

The award to O'Riodran marks the first time since the event began in 2002 that the award has been given exclusively to a woman.

Traditionally the highlight of the annual TPi Awards ceremony, the Outstanding Contribution award is given to a person whose long career has been distinguished, not only by achievement, but also by the way they have carried themselves as a professional in an ever-changing industry.

Noreen's award was announced by comedian host Russell Kane and presented by Luke Marler-Hausen, Business Development Manager at Blackmagic Design, the category sponsor.

In front of an audience of more than 1,400 guests, the presentation also featured a series of congratulatory messages on screen from industry contemporaries and artists including The Who's singer and Teenage Cancer Trust patron Roger Daltrey, Blur's Damon Albarn and Alex James, Madness frontman Suggs, singer-songwriter Margo Buchanan, and Paul 'Wix' Wickens and Robbie McIntosh.

Noreen joined Entec in 1980. Commenting on the award win, she said: "I am bursting with pride. I really had no idea that this was going to happen so from now on I'm sleeping with one eye open! My thanks go out to Andy Lenthall, TPi, Mark Cunningham, Craig Duffy, Adam Stevenson, Jonny Clark, Team Pendleton, Team Entec, Luke at Blackmagic Design, the legends that contributed to the amazing video tribute and, of course, all our valued clients and inventory suppliers. Big love!"
