Three new appointments at design company Stage One
10:54am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Business news
THE theatrical design company which created the London 2012 Olympic cauldron has appointed three new people in its mission to become the world’s most creative construction and manufacturing firm.
Stage One, based at Tockwith, which this year won a Queen’s Award For Enterprise, has welcomed Alan Ellis, Tim Leigh and Andy Smith to the business as performance director, client services director and head of projects respectively.
The move has seen former Stage One client Mr Ellis take on a position to lead the firm’s senior management team.
The appointments come at a “pivotal moment” for Stage One, according to chief executive Mark Johnson. He said: “The last two years have been fantastic for Stage One. The London 2012 Olympics firmly established us as world leaders in the design and manufacture of automated control systems for large-scale public events.
“We were thrilled to receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise earlier this year, in recognition of ten years of continuous innovation.
“And it’s great to be so busy now, working on contracts to deliver complex elements of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic ceremonies. However, we are keen to build on these fantastic foundations and do what we do even better and more competitively.
“In short, we want to become the world’s most creative construction and manufacturing company, and believe our three new colleagues will help us to do just that.”
