MEET THE TEAM
Rob StokesAs a co-owner of TechPro, I share responsibility for the overall performance of the business and ensuring the service we deliver to our clients remains unrivalled. Whilst my day to day focus is on the planning and implementation of our operational processes, I’m also responsible for ensuring we have motivated and successful teams. Managing compliance with all our legal obligations also forms part of my remit.
When I’m not representing TechPro to major customers and professional associations, I help develop and then implement the strategic operating plans that reflect the longer-term objectives of the business. I’m also responsible for directing our strategy towards the profitable growth and operation of the company, whilst maintaining our operational performance at peak levels.
I support our Project Managers, responsible for coordinating and managing elements of the delivery of our AV & technical support services to meet clients’ event requirements. It’s a varied role, covering everything from interpreting client briefs and conducting site visits to producing 2D AutoCAD plans and ensuring our H&S compliance.
It’s my job to prepare the video equipment and cabling used on the live events we support, which sometimes means overseeing the work of freelance technicians. I also manage and maintain our video equipment to the highest standard, to ensure everything works first time, every time.
As part of the Operations team, I’m responsible for preparing and maintaining our lighting equipment, before it goes out to bring the wow to another live event. I also maintain stock of the lighting department’s consumables to ensure everything works straight out of the flight cases.
I oversee the finance and accounts teams, with direct responsibility for the company’s financial accounts and monitoring the performance of the business. I also ensure our financial systems are robust, compliant and support current activities and future growth. Implementing and overseeing our ISO procedures is also in my remit.
Maintaining client relationships and developing new connections is key to our success. I like nothing more than being given the opportunity to explain how TechPro’s flawless delivery is created and how we can help event agencies enhance their own reputation with their clients. Having successfully delivered hundreds of projects for TechPro on the ground, it’s easy for me to be honest and passionate about our service.
I’m responsible for preparing all of our audio equipment and cabling for use at live events. I often work with our technical teams at venues to ensure every word or note is heard. I also maintain all our audio equipment to a high standard and monitor the department’s consumables.
