Lee Charteris to step down from Flash
UAE: Lee Charteris is set to step down from his role as vice president of operations at Flash Entertainment. Mr Charteris has been the head of operations for the Abu Dhabi-based events company since its inception in 2008 and is now looking to pursue other projects.
‘The past eight years at Flash have been great, we have really built a brand for Abu Dhabi and the UAE to be proud of,’ said Mr Charteris. ‘Eight years is a long time to do anything. It is now time for some new challenges.’
There have been a number of highlights for Mr Charteris from his years at Flash. ‘I am proud of so many of the events that we produced during my time at Flash,’ he reflected. ‘Stand outs would have to be the first Coldplay show at Emirates Palace way back in 2009 and more recently the Rolling Stones concert at Du Arena. Also working with some great people, and helping/seeing some young folks mature into great event producers in their own right.’
With Mr Charteris set to make an announcement shortly on the new challenges he will be taking on, this move will give him more time to dedicate to his new position with ILEA. ‘I look forward to new challenges and to more time for my new role as president of ILEA - Middle East,’ he concluded.
