Enrico Nobile has been appointed as ETC's new European rigging sales manager. Nobile will be based out of the Rome office, with much of his time spent in the sales territories of ETC GmbH and ETC Ltd, working in collaboration with distributors, dealers and integrators.
Nobile's involvement in the industry began in 1979 when he established the design and installation company Elettrosistemi. Six years later, he accepted a position with ARRI Italia and developed the technical department while working alongside Fulvio Cotogni, the former ETC regional manager for Southern Europe and the Middle East. Subsequently, Nobile served as a project manager for Strand Lighting, and later for the Manfrotto Vitec Group, before setting up the TEYCORIG rigging brand in 2011. He spent the following five years managing the design, development and distribution of a complete range of hoists and control systems - the FLY series - for television studios, auditoria, theatre and architectural applications.
"Becoming the new European rigging sales manager is both a dream come true and a new challenge for me," says Nobile. "Since my first experience with ETC, when ARRI used ETC technology in its consoles, I have watched the company grow. Now, I have seen first-hand the passion at ETC, and the emphasis placed both on product testing and on customer support. I was impressed to find that 100 percent of rigging equipment is fully tested before final packing. For this reason, I'm proud to have the opportunity to guide and nurture the rigging business in Europe, together with the rest of the rigging team and the wider ETC family."
Mark Vassallo, vice president of sales at ETC, adds: "It is with great honour that I welcome Enrico to ETC as the European rigging sales manager. Enrico, whom I have known for many years, has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the rigging business. This will help him in his future challenges of introducing ETC into the rigging market in Europe. I know Enrico will be successful in this journey into rigging with ETC."
