UK - London and Dubai based event design and technical production company Maestra Group has added several new staff to the London team.
The company has also doubled the size of its premises in east London by acquiring the warehouse space next door, creating a brand-new environment from which to service and administer a diversity of shows and events.
The new staff joining the team include two project managers, two production designers and another technical manager.
Maestra London’s managing director Justin Hammond comments: “I’m always very energised to see new talent coming onboard and am really looking forward to working with all our new colleagues, offering them opportunities to flourish as individuals and to excel at their work in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere”.
Michaela Welford (senior project manager) worked in Dubai’s vibrant and a high-pressure events bubble for five years.
Matt Appleby (senior project manager) used to work as a sound engineer. He’s worked in most sectors of the events industry in recent years.
Technical manager Alex Hardie brings the lighting element of technical design to the fore with a career that started as a theatre ASM working his way up through being a technician, an operator and then an LD.
Production designer Adrian Powell’s previous employment was in exhibition design, and he engages in a lot of videography and photography skills which are definitely transferable to his work at Maestra London
Assistant production designer Kat Fung is an interior architecture graduate.
