Panalux has announced the hiring of lighting-industry veteran Sandro Leone as the company’s Long Form Sales Director.

In this role, Leone will focus on serving feature and series productions in London and Southeast England.

"Sandro brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in lighting rentals," said Panalux Managing Director Mark Furssedonn. "Additionally, his previous roles in camera rental give him a keen perspective on how the equipment and service offerings of the larger Panavision group can further support our customers’ needs. We’re thrilled to welcome Sandro to the Panalux family."

Leone previously served as head of sales at Procam Take 2 Films, and prior to that as head of film and drama at Filmscape Media. Those positions followed 17 years with Arri Lighting Rental.

"I feel lucky to be part of the incredible team here at Panalux, and I’m excited to help the company continue to deliver the best-in-class service and support our customers know they can rely on," Leone said. "Being part of the Panavision group is particularly exciting. The opportunity to work as part of that group, which has serviced so many iconic pictures throughout its illustrious history, is hugely gratifying and inspiring. I’m looking forward to what Panalux and the entire Panavision group will continue to achieve!"

Leone is based in London and reports to Michele Channer, Panalux’s Business Development Director. He will work out of Panalux's new, purpose-built London headquarters, which will be fully operational in the coming months.
