  • Mollie Sanders

    I started in 2015 as a fresh faced Live events graduate as a summer temp within the support team. I am now a full time team member with the job of checking all of the returning hires and supporting our touring shows.

    Coming from a performing background I am thoroughly enjoying learning how the professional industry works and all the backstage excitement that goes with it.

  • Ryan Stromski

    I am a Business Development Manager looking after a range of events from conferences to launching supersonic cars, I like the unusual events and have a very creative streak. I have a background in audio and spent over ten years working as a front of house engineer, I can still be found behind the sound desk from time to time.

     

    I started in the events industry at the tender age of 16 whilst studying Technical Theatre and Stage Management in my home town of Barnstaple, Devon.

    I later went on to study music at the University of Gloucestershire where I began touring and working on festivals including a ten year stint lighting the Shan Gri La Field at Glastonbury festival. I am very passionate about our industry, particularly music and audio applications.

     

    When I’m not in the office or on site I’ll have the amp turned up and Fender guitar plugged in or a surfboard under my arm. I wonder if I could combine the two?..

  • Katy Lowe

    I started at SLX in 2005 as a Sound Technician. Moving onto Projects I worked installing electrics in new theatres before taking orders on the front counter as a Customer Service Rep for Sales & Hire.

    I later joined the Hire Operations Team, ensuring the right kit is available and wherever it is needed.

    From there I progressed to lead the Hire Support Team, supporting Tours, West End Shows & the Edinburgh Festival.

    I am very excited to now be working as the Customer Service Manager for SLX 

  • CHRIS LEWIS

    I joined SLX in 2001 to coincide with the birth of the video department.

    I have a wealth of experience in projection and display technologies from the good old days of 35mm slides, right through to today’s cutting edge equipment.

    Too west country for my own good, I'm an occasional surfer and cider enthusiast.

  • Josh WakLEy

    I moved to SLX in 2017 from the Redgrave Theatre, having worked on a diverse range of projects in the South West across the mediums of theatre, live performance, film and television. I started working theatre back in 2008, and despite a slog in the television and film world alongside my 1st Class Honours in Filmmaking & Creative Media (UWE) I couldn’t resist getting back into the excitement of working live.

     

    Working from the ground up I have had the opportunity to have hands on experience in the majority of creative and technical roles, with particular bias to lighting, stage management, and production design.  

     

    I now work as part of the CSR team with SLX, supporting a range of productions from small theatre groups to international touring shows.

  • Ryan whiteside

    Joining SLX straight from school I work alongside our CSR team as an apprentice in Business admin. One of my interests is boxing, another is movies (favourite film has to be the Shawshank redemption). I work in the Avonmouth office, helping to take calls and orders as well as greeting visitors.

  • Rob Collett

    Joining SLX in the summer of 2014, I head up the thriving audio department.

    I bring with me a wealth of experience from touring with Coldplay to conferencing with Boehringer.

    My passions are well packaged, intelligent systems as well as red wine & surfing...

  • SPIKE Shaw

    I started in 2005, after over 7years in the warehouse in a variety of roles, I moved into the office where I primarily solve logistical excitements.

    If you need to speak to someone about smoke or haze machines, I'll be able to help you.

  • Rachael Stewart

    I joined SLX in 1997 and have made my way through the ranks starting as receptionist (for a record 3 weeks – apparently I like to chat!) to Sales to Hire Operations Manager to Business Systems Manager.

    Through the time I have helped to shape and develop systems and operations to continually improve our customers’ experience. I am looking forward to the future and working with the awesome team to make SLX the very best it can be.

    Outside of work I am a busy mum of 2, a team manager for my local rugby club, part of my school’s PTA and am always seen doing stupid things all in aid of fundraising for a charity close to my heart. If you need to phone a friend, then I am your movie contact for sure. 

  • Briony Gothard

    Starting with a passion for Sound and all things musical, I was gripped by the glitterbug at aged 5 when I fell in love with show biz.

    Coming from the land of song, it is an honour to work for a company that helps others (of all ages) fall in love with show business.

    Being a part of SLX was my goal, I started in 2010 as a wide eyed with Audio Knowledge Warehouse Technician in the Power team, building myself to a general hire contract handler, dealing with all kinds of customers to help them receive their hires. With this I managed to go and site and learn about all aspects of the Hire and Event side of the business.

    In 2011, I joined the Events team as a Live Events Technican and was a part of  some important Events, such as the Gromit Auction, running Haymarket Awards and of course the Olympics.

    I then got married and became a mum, the call of site wasn’t as strong so I moved to Sales as Customer Service Representive and got back onto the ‘Glittery Stage’  as well as running my own youth drama group Great Western Youth Theatre

  • JAck Phillips

  • CHARLI DALY

    I joined SLX in July 2017. I enjoy live events and theatres so it’s good to see how it goes on behind the scenes. I love working as a CSR and the team here are fantastic to work with. Outside of work I go Tap dancing every week and enjoy spending time with my little boy and friends.
