At CEG we're a small team, with each of us specialising in different areas of the business - some of us are technically focussed, where as others might be more project orientated.

Between us all we form a group of people that's able to achieve any task.


Gavin Thorrold

Managing Director

Gav is one of the Directors at CEG. He heads up the rental and operations departments on a daily basis. Gav has many years of experience under his belt and is one of the most experienced technical members of the CEG team. There are not a lot of things Gavin hasn't seen or done, day or night he's happy to talk so give him a call or drop him an email.

In his spare time he can be found down on the farm, doing DIY or playing rugby.


Ben Bowles


Ben is not only the office man, and general stationary addict, he also keeps a very keen eye on the rental division of the business. Known for his “interesting” sense of humour, Ben keeps the team chuckling away all day.

If you’re interested in becoming a new rental customer, looking to make a purchase or have an accounts query then you should get in touch with Ben.


Dan Flynn

Rental Sales Manager

Dan can usually be found looking after the rental desk and taking care of the day-to-day enquiries as they come in. Having worked in the entertainment business for many years he is no stranger to the dramatics. He has a strong passion for Theatre and Live Events…others might call him ‘stagey’.

If there is anything rental related you have a question about, give Dan a call – he loves to talk lights.

In his spare time you can find Dan watching the boxing or on long walks with his dog Comet.
