NOTTINGHAM, UK – Ben Virgo has joined Chauvet as European Senior Product Specialist for the company’s CHAUVET Professional lighting products.

“We’re excited to welcome Ben to our team,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “The growth of our company has been fueled by the high quality of our products and service. In light of Ben’s experience, ability and passion for excellence, we’re confident he’ll fit right into the Chauvet culture and make valuable contributions to our efforts.”
Michael Brooksbank, General Manager of Chauvet Europe, was equally enthused about Virgo’s appointment. “Ben is a great addition to our team,” he said. “His technical qualifications are outstanding, but beyond that he shares our philosophy of building Chauvet by offering customers the best possible value.”
Virgo will work out of London, but will be traveling extensively throughout the EU. “I’m very excited to interact with Chauvet customers and learn from them,” he said. “Chauvet has grown tremendously by understanding and addressing the needs of customers. I look forward to being part of this process with a very supportive and talented team of people.”
