Suzie Wrennall, co-director of Kube Rigging, focuses on commercial and logistical aspects of the business. Previously Suzie was involved in the distribution and licensing of music, and so it was a natural progression to become more directly involved in film and help develop and support Kube Rigging. Whether purchasing new equipment or overseeing operations, Suzie is involved in every aspect including liaising with other HOD riggers on other productions that we supply.
Lee Sherlock is our newly appointed Business Development Manager. We are delighted to welcome Lee to Kube Rigging as he has many, many years of experience working on commercials and TV/film productions within the rigging industry. His in-depth knowledge of the operational and technical aspects of rigging equipment combined with his personable nature make him the ideal person for gaffers, construction managers, riggers, and production crew to liaise with when working out what equipment is needed for the job.
