Adlib has announced two new appointments to its Scottish operation. Barclay Dakers (top) joins as business development manager, while Craig Hamilton has secured the role of operations manager.
Dakers will be dedicated to building Adlib’s brand and customer relations in Scotland and connecting with past, present and future clients to provide creative and appropriate sound, lighting and AV solutions for all scenarios.
Dakers has installed and run PA systems in nightclubs and worked with Edinburgh University at the world famous Fringe Festival, becoming production manager for several top Fringe venues. Before joining Adlib, he worked for moving light brand, Martin Professional.
Hamilton (right) will be based in the new warehouse in Glasgow and will be dealing with logistics and the day-to-day running of the facility, working with the Scottish sales and management teams and liaising closely with Adlib’s HQ in Liverpool.
Before joining Adlib, Hamilton worked for AMG as technical manager at the ABC Glasgow since it opened in 2005. After AMG took the venue over he took on the role of technical manager at both the O2 ABC and the O2 Academy.
Hamilton said: “I’ve always enjoyed working with Adlib crew when they came through the venue and have always been impressed by their professionalism, ethos and approach.”
