Pursuing its expansion plan in North America, Solotech announces the opening of a new office in Nashville. Led by Paul Owen, the office will develop new business opportunities in international touring and special events.
In addition to serving its existing customers, the Solotech Nashville office offers turnkey solutions to international tours and special events customers, specifically in the rental of audio, lighting, video and rigging equipment.
“Nashville is the Music City,” explains Martin Chouinard, Executive Vice President of Solotech’s Rental division. “We have several clients in this city and it was important for us to have a storefront there, to be closer to their reality.”
Owen acts as Managing Director of the Nashville Solotech office. Recognized for his work in the biggest stages and stadiums in the world, Owen has more than 35 years of experience in touring. During his career, Owen worked as vice president of Thunder Audio, monitor engineer and production manager.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work for a company of this size,” Owen says. “I have always admired Solotech’s work and I intend to lead the Nashville office towards unprecedented success.”
Owen will work jointly with Lee Moro, who joined Solotech in September 2014 as Senior Project Director for tours and special events and is very active in the touring industry. Moro has been based in Nashville for the past ten years and has worked with many renowned international touring artists.
“Paul and I bring years and years of real-world experience to our clients,” Moro says. “We have been in their shoes and we know what they expect. That’s why we make sure we have the best staff. Our people are some of the best on the market. They are proud and take their job seriously. They work together and are passionate about what they do.”
Dianna Mariotti is also part of the Solotech team in Nashville, as an administrative assistant. She will assist Owen and Moro in their day-to-day tasks.
