Lester Cobrin has joined XL Video UK as Senior Project Manager.
Cobrin (pictured) brings 20 years of experience in the lighting and live production industry, and has worked for Samuelson’s Concert Productions, Theatre Projects, Light & Sound Design and Bandit Lites.
“We’re really excited to have Lester onboard,” said Video managing director Lee Spencer. “His lively and energetic style of management suits us and fits perfectly with our dynamic team and work ethos. In addition to being a dedicated and strong team player, he is well connected and respected throughout the industry … which is ultimately very much ‘all about the people’.”
“Obviously I’m looking forward to joining XL and to taking on new challenges plus a change in direction in the world of show visuals,” said Cobrin. “With the ever increasing crossover between video and lighting, I can use my understanding and education from one medium in new, different and inventive ways. At this moment, the possibilities for ever more visual innovation and imagination being unleashed in these disciplines make it a fantastic time to take up this new post with XL.”
