PRG Nocturne Kicks Off UK Venture with Dynamic New Team Commitment to Customer Support Behind Investment in New Equipment and Experienced Team
LONDON, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PRG Nocturne has a global reputation for unmatched LED video and projection support to the concert touring, festival, and corporate event markets. Understanding and anticipating the needs of their clients is at the core of PRG Nocturne's success and the decision to greatly expand its operations in the United Kingdom.
"We are now heading into our fourth year with PRG," says Bob Brigham, President of PRG Nocturne. "One of the deciding factors in joining the PRG team was our dream to expand into the UK/European markets. The expansion of our UK operation allows us to fully support the rapidly growing demand with an experienced team of people and quality gear that our customers expect of PRG Nocturne US and UK."
In 2014, the UK operation has supported numerous tours and festival appearances including The Eagles, Katy Perry, Metallica, Skrillex, Franz Ferdinand, Bastille, Linkin Park, and The Rolling Stones. They have also worked with a roster of corporate clients which included 3D projection mapping for the launch of Vodafone Firsts 'Pitch your #First' campaign for the Wasserman Media Group.
Irving Azoff of Azoff MSG Entertainment says "We've always loved working with PRG Nocturne. With the addition of PRG Nocturne in the UK, they just got better."
Bob O'Brien, Production Manager for The Script and Franz Ferdinand comments, "I cannot emphasise the importance of having PRG Nocturne on our side every step of the way. Now that PRG Nocturne is fully established in the UK, I can rest assured every detail is well in-hand."
PRG Nocturne's well-respected and experienced UK team includes Chief Sales Officer Rich Rowley, Account Director Stefaan Michels, and Head of Video Services Mark O'Herlihy.
With 25 years of experience, Rowley looks forward to the opportunities that having a fully stocked and staffed PRG Nocturne operation in the UK will offer customers. "With the warehouse in Longbridge and the core account management team in our Covent Garden office, we will be able to optimise the way we do business with designers and production. PRG Nocturne is completely committed to ensuring that we offer all our customers the innovative products, solid solutions, and convenient, timely response they need. We will expand our client base across markets as we apply our knowledge from years of touring to elevate the video experience for other markets."
Michels and O'Herlihy are the ideal choices to help develop the UK operation's expansion having both originated from PRG Nocturnes US operation. Michels comments, "What's great about PRG Nocturne is they invest in people," he says. "We plan to keep working as a team to drive the industry and PRG Nocturne in the UK forward with new gear, new markets, and new people."
O'Herlihy agrees wholeheartedly and adds, "PRG Nocturne will continue to innovate; create custom solutions; and offer a full range of LED products on a much larger scale than we've ever done before. We have always been known for a core team of really talented people and that's what expanding the UK operation of PRG Nocturne is building upon."
