Pursuing its expansion plan in North America, Solotech announced the opening of a new office in Nashville, TN. Led by Paul Owen, the office will develop new business opportunities in international touring and special events.
“Nashville is the music city. We have several clients in this city and it was important for us to have a storefront there, to be closer to their reality,” says Martin Chouinard, Executive Vice-President of the Rental division of Solotech. In addition to serving existing customers, the Solotech Nashville office offers international tours and special events solutions in rental of audio, lighting, video, and rigging equipment.
Paul Owen acts as managing director of the Nashville Solotech office. Owen has over 35 years of experience in touring. During his career, he 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. I have always admired Solotech’s work and I intend to lead the Nashville office towards unprecedented success,” says Owen.
Owen will work jointly with Lee Moro. Moro 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 10 years and has worked with many renowned international touring artists.
“Paul and I bring years and years of real-world experience to our clients. We have been in their shoes and we know what they expect,” says Moro. “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.”
Finally, 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.
Owen and Moro invite touring and special events customers to contact the Solotech Nashville office for more information. The office is located at 6107 Centennial Boulevard, Nashville, Tennessee and can be reached at the following phone number: 615-457-1506.
