This month, Spektrix CEO and co-founder Michael Nabarro has been named ‘One to Watch’ as part of the LDC Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders programme. Supported by The Telegraph and part of Lloyds Bank’s business division, the programme aims to uncover and celebrate the leaders of the UK’s most exciting modern businesses.
The ‘Ones to Watch’ category showcases the dynamic and ambitious leaders behind tomorrow’s mid-sized firms. The individuals selected, after a rigorous interview process, have built extraordinary brands and are punching way above their weight in the growth and export stakes.
Michael studied Computer Science at the University of Cambridge and became General Manager of the ADC Theatre in Cambridge, before spending a year studying stage electrics and lighting design at RADA. He then began work as a freelance lighting designer, at the same time combining his expertise in technology and the arts to create the system that would become Spektrix. Twelve years later the company’s mission – to help entertainment organisations to engage and deepen relationships with the broadest range of audiences – remains unchanged, even as it has grown into a market leader working with over 400 successful arts organisations in the UK and North America.
Michael said, “I’m delighted to be part of the illustrious group of business leaders who have been named as ‘Ones to Watch’ in this year’s list. It’s been a joy to lead the growth of Spektrix from strength to strength over its twelve year journey, and this recognition is testament to the hard work and commitment of the team working alongside me in London, Manchester and New York, as well as to the creativity and courage of the cultural sector across two continents. I look forward to welcoming new clients, forging new partnerships and continuing to expand our offering in 2020 – which in turn, will continue strengthening a sector whose work is of vital importance for wellbeing and quality of life in our communities.”
