Alan Macdonald began his career in the AV industry in 1985 at Stage Technical Services, a lighting company in Cricklewood, London, which was subsequently acquired by the Samuelson Group in 1987. He continued to work with Samuelson’s as an on-site engineer until the formation of Blitz Communications in 1990. During his tenure at Blitz, Alan gained experience in all areas of the business by progressing through the ranks over a period of 18 years. In his last few years at Blitz Alan headed up a very successful sales and install division for the business. In 2007, Alan decided it was time to start something new and established Media Powerhouse, initially concentrating on sales and installations, with the addition of a rental division in 2008. Leveraging his knowledge of event services and permanent installations, Media Powerhouse became a prominent player in the UK’s AV market. In 2016, Alan assumed the role of Managing Director, overseeing all group companies and demonstrating a profound understanding of all areas of our industry as well as an unrivalled commitment to customer satisfaction.
