He is responsible for all day-to-day operations in our UK hire offices in Watford and Salford, freeing up more time for Managing Director Warren Taggart to devote to strategic developments.
Andy Scott’s key focus – aside from managing our UK hire team – is reviewing and improving the company’s business processes. He can call upon a wealth of experience in that regard from his previous role of camera operations manager for ARRI Rental. There he pioneered the roll-out of several new business systems that were adopted in divisions across the world.
His time at ARRI spanned a total of almost 23 years, starting at the bottom as a camera technician testing equipment as it came in and out of the rental department. He gradually worked his way up to management level, becoming camera department manager, before being promoted to camera operations manager.
Andy’s past success driving strategic acquisition associated with a large hire fleet means he is well-placed to determine the key priorities for ES Broadcast Hire’s ongoing expansion of its market-leading UHD inventory. And he is also responsible for identifying and implementing further efficiencies in the company’s logistics and inventory management processes.
Although he has spent most of his career in the cine world, Andy does also have broadcast experience, having had his first job on the camera floor at reseller and hire company OpTex some 25 years ago! And of course the broad skill-set he honed at ARRI Rental stands him in excellent stead for the demands of overseeing all our broadcast rental operations in the UK.
