Budding technology entrepreneur and adrenaline junkie Alex Strachan started his AV and technical event production career at the young age when he took part in work experience at a local production company, he soon packed up his life to move to Guernsey and commence a permanent production company contract as soon as he came of age at sixteen where he progressed over a period of around five years.
Alex then decided to go out on his own and founded a commercial lighting company earning him the start of a long reputation as a competent and genuine business owner. After creating a second and slightly larger company which specialized in event lighting, Alex then joined forces with an established LED screen business where he adapted to the greater national audience and became an expert in LED screen technology.
For Alex, event production should be nothing but exceptional and there was no company that had the collaborative approach he envisioned in the market. With substantial knowledge of the industry and technology under his belt, Alex realized with his trustworthy reputation and solid connections he had gained through a decade in the industry, he could finally utilize his extended talent and create his flagship business.
Alex was fortunate enough to gain a loyal team who believed in him and his perspective of the industry and joined him on creating a truly unique organization, specialising in LED screen hire and event production, which they called iMAG Displays. Learning from their observations from decades of combined experience of the industry, the team launched iMAG on the basis of a new kind of business model – market challengers. They built their values on challenging the industry on product and service quality, communication, project management, technical expertise, and innovation, and so far their portfolio of clients suggests they are doing a pretty good job!
Alex isn’t just making waves in the AV production industry, outside of work, Alex spends his rare free time jet skiing on the south coast or taking part in other adrenaline and high-speed sports before kicking back and relaxing with his Labradors.
