ADJ Group welcomes Bob Mentele to the team


ADJ Group has recently recruited Bob Mentele for the role of vertical market manager with special focus on the worship, theatre, TV broadcasting and education markets. His new role will include supporting existing national and regional sales managers by driving specifications for Elation Professional and ADJ within these markets. Alongside his new role, Mentele will continue to work as the technical director/lighting designer for the Parker High School Musical Programme.

For the past six years, Mentele was the lighting category manager at Full Compass Systems. Before this, he was the rentals supervisor at Full Compass and technical director and lighting designer for the Armory Theatre in Janesville, Wisconsin. During his career, Mentele has performed on several occasions at church, various summer church camps and community theatre productions. For two years, Mentele served as the contemporary praise band leader and technical supervisor at Faith Lutheran Church, using his worship and technical design experience during this role.

‘As we continue to grow within the theatrical, worship, broadcast and educational markets, we’re pleased to be welcoming Bob Mentele into our tightknit team in the new role of vertical market manager concentrating on these areas,’ commented Toby Velazquez, president of the ADJ Group of Companies. ‘Bob already has strong working relationships with many members of our sales team as well as extensive experience of guiding churches and performance spaces through the process of identifying, purchasing and installing the right lighting and video systems to meet their needs and fit within their budgets. In his new role Bob will continue to do this, for both new and existing customers, as well as providing support to our internal sales team and external dealers.’

Mentele added: ‘I am very excited to join a company that started small and grew to become a great leader in the industry. I am so proud to be a member of the team and I am looking forward to working with customers to offer creative lighting solutions that will enhance and encourage great lighting designs. Having worked in theatres large and small, with budgets to match, I have experienced it all and look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion with ADJ and Elation customers. I am also passionate about teaching and informing the new generation of theatrical lighting designers about the amazing array of options and lighting opportunities available to them in this astonishing world of incredible lighting technology.’
