Eclipse Staging Services will be welcoming a new face into its fold this month, with the arrival of Martin Lubach, who has just been appointed as the company’s new general manager.
With 30 years of experience in the entertainment industry, Lubach had previously worked for two years as Commercial Director at PRG UK, a leading supplier of technical equipment and services to the production industry.
Following on from that role, he went on to tour for several years as the Lead Programmer and Board Op for major bands such as Bon Jovi, Sting and New Order. Between the years 1993 – 1997, Martin had his first experience in team management where he helped develop and oversee the manufacturing of the Starlite MK5 console and lighting fixture.
“I’m relishing the challenge of working in Dubai,” stated the new GM to Sound & Stage last month when asked about his new position.
“I will be looking to streamline and develop the entire team to further support Eclipse’s growth; working alongside the rest of the management team and taking the company forward into the next stage of its evolution.”
Eclipse Group CEO, Mark Brown commented “I first worked with Martin whilst he was at Starlite, in the 1990’s, developing the award winning Starlaser which toured with Elton John and Deep Purple. Martin has the unique combination of technical and commercial background and has been working in a senior position for one of the largest companies in our industry. Eclipse needed a more structured approach in its management, and Martin can help develop this.”
