His appointment follows the arrival of Brian Friborg as the new Head of Signify Entertainment Lighting, and of Gary W. Sanders as Sales Manager for the Americas. Based at the company's Dallas office, Masek will look after Business Development for the Philips Vari-Lite, Philips Strand Lighting, Philips Selecon and Showline brands.


Masek has specialized in automated lighting for almost thirty years. Beginning his career in 1990 as a Vari-Lite Road Technician, he toured the world with various artists, providing on-site support for Vari-Lite products from the VL1 onwards.
