UK - West London rental specialist Entec has announced the appointment of Daniel Scantlebury as its new head of sound, effective immediately.
Scantlebury, who has joined after several years with Manchester-based dbnAudile as a senior project manager, says: “It was time for a new challenge and an incredible opportunity like this does not come along very often, so I’m thrilled. I’ve always respected Entec for its approach to business as well as its impressive history, and moving south to be closer to my family was also a consideration.”
The news of Dan’s appointment coincides with another major move for the company’s sound department. A committed d&b rental house since 1995, Entec recently invested in the brand’s latest generation SL-Series with the purchase of 50 KSL line array loudspeakers - 28 KSL 8 (80° dispersion), four KSL 12 (120°) and 18 cardioid SL-Subs - for medium to large applications.
Making its debut with Entec on Van Morrison’s autumn UK tour, this investment follows the company’s exposure to the SL range whilst working on Gorillaz’ most recent tours, Humanz Live and The Now-Now, in partnership with Colorado’s Brown Note Productions.
“We are set up for the future,” claims Scantlebury. “In my opinion, KSL and its sibling GSL have superseded every other brand on the market, so we are entering this new phase with seriously cutting-edge technology that has been proving itself over and over.
Entec’s KSL system will next appear on Dream Theater’s The Distance Over Time UK tour in February.
Scantlebury follows in the footsteps of Jonny Clark, who successfully served as the department head for three and a half years. “There was a very helpful, week-long handover period,” comments Scantlebury, “and I’m happy to say I have inherited an excellent starting point with which to move things forward and develop new client relationships in the touring world.”
Entec’s managing director Noreen O’Riordan says, “On behalf of all our staff, I am very excited to welcome Dan onboard to head up the Entec audio department. Dan has an engaging personality and the right leadership skills and knowledge to extend the growth and vision of this company. We all look forward to working with him.”
