FIX8Group are extremely proud to welcome AV Pro Paul Williams and Creative Genius Richard Kenyon into the team! Paul, Richard and the company have had a long successful history working together, and we look forward to working alongside them on our future projects, so watch this space!
Paul joins the team following eight years as Managing Director of Integrated Audio Visual Ltd – a company which he built from start up to provide AV services to end clients and production companies. Prior to that, he spent five years as a freelance AV engineer.
“After working closely with FIX8 on various jobs over the past four years, it was obvious that the synergy created through those close working practices could be strengthened and leveraged for forthcoming projects,” says Paul. “My responsibilities as Project Director will focus on supporting the delivery of our work.
“This will include streamlining the processes for project delivery, with an overview of compliance and training within the company, project management roles on some specific projects as well as working closely with the Technical Director to ensure that we are bringing the best tools to bear in delivering and exceeding the expectations FIX8Group’s clients.
“I hope to help FIX8 not only provide outstanding services to its clients, but also provide services backed up by robust practices and forward-thinking technology,” Paul concludes.
Richard joins us bringing a wealth of industry knowledge, experience and skills to broaden FIX8Group’s offering and is responsible for overseeing the development and integration of FIX8Studio – the company’s new digital activation facility.
“I worked with a number of artists such as Shirley Bassey, Rod Stewart, Elton John and Queen,” says Richard. “I was inspired by Queen’s lighting rig to take up lighting design for nightclubs and live performers. After moving to London I became a freelance AV technician. I became an expert in video/data projection when it was still a black art. I formed my first company with a colleague providing project management and show operator services. We came across one of the first Apple computers being used for conference graphics. We decided to invest in a system and that is where my interest – obsession! – in computer generated graphics started.
“Over the last few years I have completed several successful projects for FIX8Group, warming to the company’s style and ambitions,” says Richard. “This relationship naturally progressed to a point where it made sense for us to pursue our shared vision, to integrate the technical and creative disciplines and in turn create an industry leading company for all live event technical and creative requirements.
“FIX8Studio is working on several projects utilising our extensive skill set to deliver an end to end service,” Richard explains. “Everything from the initial conceptual ideas through to design and storyboarding, planning, execution and delivery.”
