It’s great working for a company that can offer such great mobility and opportunities all over the globe.
Gediminas started with Encore in 2016 as an AV Technician in London working in various venues across the city and gaining a wealth of technical event experience. After a short pause with the company, he has decided to take on a role as Technical Events Manager at Encore in 2021 at one of our most prestigious hotels in Switzerland. We interviewed Gediminas to find out more about his personal experience with Encore and his enthusiasm to be part of our global team.
Tell us about your career background with Encore?
“I started my time with Encore working in various venues across London from 2016-2020. First as an AV Technician at the Hilton London Metropole and Paddington before moving up to Senior Technician. From here I spent over a year as an Assistant Technical Events Manager at the Langham London before I was promoted to Technical Events Manager at the Langham and the Hyatt Regency Churchill Hotel. In 2021 I made the move to Switzerland where I have been working since as a Technical Events Manager at Encore.”
What made you decide to join our company again?
“I already knew the values of the company and my personal values fit really well. I am also recognised in the company because I’ve worked for 5 years with the team in London. I also knew it would be a good collaboration and I would be appreciated in the company as they value team members so highly. Now I work in Switzerland because I love the landscape and I’d often spend my holidays here previously. I’m very happy that I was offered the opportunity in Switzerland as Technical Events Manager at Encore, it’s great working for a company that can offer such great mobility and opportunities all over the globe.”
What are you most proud of in your career progress?
“I’m very proud of the rigging training and the management training I’ve done in London previously. I’m also proud of my work experience during the years I worked in London. I was determined to be a Technical Events Manager by the time I was 25 and I actually did it! I’m very proud of this because it taught me that you can do anything you want if you believe in yourself and work for it. I’m glad for the chance to learn and grow with Encore which is something they empower you to do. Finally, I’m grateful for the opportunity to work for Encore in Switzerland as a TEM and to further develop my knowledge here.”
