UK-based lighting and visuals rental specialist, HSL, has appointed Mick Seddon as group financial director and strategist.
Working closely with HSL’s MD Simon Stuart, Seddon will play a key role in HSL’s active expansion over the next five years, and is one of a number of high level appointments to be announced by the company in the coming months.
Seddon’s accountancy practice has already been collaborating with HSL for several years. During that time, he has been instrumental for the management and co-ordination of several acquisitions by the HSL Group, including the purchase of Playlight, The Lighthouse, and Production Services Ireland.
HSL is currently formulating plans to grow the company while remaining agile and decisive in a competitive marketplace. This includes integrating more companies into the group by offering a positive working environment, where they can maintain their own identity while maximising their potential with access to a wide and dynamic range of resources, infrastructure, skills and creative thinking.
Several major changes within HSL’s management structure over the last two years have paved the way for the planned growth ahead. At the essence of this is positioning the company to continue delivering the very best standards of technical production to all areas of professional entertainment and leisure.
Seddon commented: “I am hugely excited to be joining HSL and spearheading this current round of expansion. We are fully focused on building the brand by involving charismatic, imaginative, driven individuals and organisations who share our passion for the industry. Through their hard work and specialist knowledge, we can all develop and grow for the future”.
