Marc Raymond, CEO of Q1 Production Technologies, along with Craig Redden, VP Rentals, are pleased to announce that Holly O’Hair has joined the company as director of marketing, USA.

O’Hair comes to Q1 with a wide range of experience in the lighting and entertainment industries, most notably having spent over 10 years in all areas of entertainment technology magazine publishing, including six years specifically related to entertainment lighting at Live Design (formerly Lighting Dimensions).

“Holly is a perfect addition to Q1,” says Raymond, noting that her knowledge of the industry, from the people to the latest technology, gives her tremendous insight into which projects are a good fit for the company. “We are extremely pleased to have someone with her industry credibility representing us in the very important touring market.”

Based in Los Angeles, Holly will be responsible for developing relationships with lighting designers, production and tour managers, and artists and artists’ management in order to increase awareness of Q1’s expertise and range of services, and establish new opportunities for the company to provide lighting services—particularly in the area of concert touring—to US-based clients.

“I’ve become familiar with Q1 over the years through my involvement in major industry publications and events, and feel that it is the ideal company through which to make a career shift into the supplier side of the business,” says O’Hair about her new appointment. “Although Q1 itself is a relatively young company, Marc and Craig, along with many of their key associates, are among the most experienced and highly regarded professionals in the industry. I am excited to bring my own industry knowledge and relationships to this dynamic team and further establish Q1’s position in the marketplace.”
