It is with great sadness that we announce the departure of one of our own. Michael O’Connor started with CinequipWhite in 2004, and has been an amazing and integral part of our sales team since then. We all wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Canada’s Comweb Takes CinequipWhite In-House by cinequipwhite

Canadian broadcast sales company CinequipWhite is to be managed directly by studio and production equipment supply giant Comweb Group and William F. White, replacing a management contract under Christie Lites Sales.

TORONTO — Canadian studio and production equipment supply giant Comweb Group has taken its broadcast sales arm, CinequipWhite, in-house.

CinequipWhite will no longer be managed by Bob Johnston and Christie Lites Sales under a management contract.

Paul Bronfman’s Comweb and William F. White International group will instead manage the company directly.

Bronfman, who is also chairman of Pinewood Toronto Studios, installed Larry Lavoie as national sales manager and Marc Ford as national operations manager at CinequipWhite.

And over at Pinewood’s Toronto studio, day-to-day control is now in the hands of Blake Steels as general manager after managing director Edith Myers completed a two-year turnaround of the mega-studio.

Myers will remain on board as a consultant at Pinewood Toronto Studios, which is currently hosting the Colin Farrell-starrer Total Recall movie shoot.

There’s also been a changing of the guard at Comweb and William F. White, where Rick Perotto, most recently business rep for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 667, was recently named vp of business development.

And David Hardy, business agent for NABET 700 CEP, a rival technicians union in Toronto, has been brought on board as vp of client services at Comweb/William F. White.
