Showtools International, a leading supplier of stage lighting and rigging equipment in Australia, is thrilled to announce the appointment of Chris Tatnell as their newest Operations Manager in Melbourne.
Chris has been in the lighting industry for a very long time and brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge that he has gained from his work on various tours, events, productions, warehouse management, and servicing lighting equipment.
As an experienced professional in this field, Chris has become a respected name in the industry and deservingly, he will now be heading the Showtools International-Melbourne Office as the Operations Manager in Victoria.
With his years of experience, he has developed a deep understanding of the technical and logistical aspects of lighting equipment and is always striving to find innovative solutions to any challenge that arises. Chris prides himself on his high level of customer support and always goes above and beyond for his customers.
Prior to the Covid pandemic, Chris worked at Showtools International-Queensland office, however, he decided to switch careers and pursue opportunities in the automotive electrical industry. Unfortunately, Chris felt that changing to a career in a different industry was not for him. Thankfully, an exciting opportunity to lead Showtools’ Melbourne office presented itself at the perfect time. This prompted him to leave the sunny Gold Coast beaches and make the move to the lively, vibrant, and enjoyable city of Melbourne.
“We are thrilled to have Chris join our team,” comments Robert Runko, Managing Director of Showtools International. “His extensive experience and knowledge in the lighting industry make him a perfect fit for our company, and we are confident that he will be a great asset to our team.”
