White Light has appointed Stuart Porter as Hog 4 product manager. Porter has worked extensively in London’s West End as an associate lighting designer and lighting programmer.
He comments: “I am delighted to be joining WL. I am fully aware of the company’s reputation as a leading supplier of lighting equipment, having drawn on them myself for over three decades. This feels like a natural progression for me and I’ve been delighted with the immediate response by both the company and customers alike.”
He adds: “As an experienced programmer, I’ve learnt my trade on the Hog range, having worked extensively on the Hog 2 for theatre shows, along with events such as the Commonwealth Games in Manchester, so will be able to bring that knowledge seamlessly across to the Hog 4 platform. It’s a really exciting time for Hog under the new ownership of ETC and it’s fantastic that WL has been chosen as its UK base.”
Over the next few months, Porter will be travelling across the UK, visiting venues, colleges and theatres to promote the Hog range and allow users to see first-hand its capabilities.
Stuart and the WL team are also offering training days alongside ETC for users to learn more about the products. These will be held on 4-5 December 2018, 9-10 January 2019 and 12-13 February 2019 at ETC Park Royal.
