Creative Technology Middle East (CTME) has continued its growth by adding new members to its team.

Lee Forde has been appointed as the new general manager of its Dubai branch. Forde has a 33 year-strong technical and managerial background. His background spans a variety of areas in the events industry and he has held a number of senior management positions over the span of his career.

Forde will oversee the day to day operations while assisting managing director Andy Reardon in implementing strategies to enhance and expand CTME.

Reardon said: “It is an exciting time for the Middle East as we continue to grow and expand our team of professionals. I am looking forward to working closely with Lee and wish him all the best going forward.”

Robert Turner has been welcomed as the integrated networks technical manager. Turner’s position in  CTME will help develop the newly established communications and networking division. Turner has more than 24 years experience in the AV industry, ten of which he was employed at Delta Sound specialising in Communications, Networks and radio systems, meaning he is very well-versed in this field.
