At GLS we aim to provide the best and most welcoming service possible. Combine that with the highest standards of kit prep and maintenance, a wide variety of regularly updating stock, and the most accommodating of attitudes, we aim to make every hire from us bring you a smile.

So who is behind the Magic ?

Let us introduce ourselves (in no particular order!)

(Edit: well, for now, we’ll introduce those of us that we have actually managed to pin down long enough for a photo….more to come!)

25+ years in the live industry, Jac would like to think of it as like being 21 again....just with a couple more years' experience.

Mick
Group Development

Decades of experience from the world of numbers and people who stereotypically wear grey suits (we’re not allowed to mention the ‘Accountancy’ word), Mick is our breath of fresh air in the ‘businessy’ side of things at GLS, providing strategic development and forward vision not just to us, but to all the companies in our new bigger family.

A master of all things with plans, moving parts or that need to dangle above you.

Gate keeper to many shiny toys.


Miles is at the forefront looking after our dry hire/ rental desk - so whatever kit you may find yourself in need of - he's the man who can look after you.

Amanda
Head of Warehouse

Ring Master(ess) of all things warehouse.

Joe
Warehouse Senior Technician

Warehouse’s Secret Weapon

A long term member of the GLS warehouse team, there is very little kit within our walls that he doesn't know personally, and on a microscopic level. Whilst ensuring warehouse and equipment is kept 'tickety boo', Joe also acts as a fountain of GLS kit knowledge to our newer and less experienced warehouse technicians.


Likes: Fine ales, live music.

Allison
Warehouse Technician

Queen of the Forklift

Originally from an entertainments/dancing background, and having performed in some of the most prestigious theatres in the land, Allison is one of our longest serving members of Team Warehouse, racking up nearly 10 years! Her first hand experience in the dazzle of lights, combined with years as a warehouse technician, means your kit is always prepped by someone who really cares about the end result.

Likes: Dancing, anything 1950’s, Pimms
