Cereco International : Consultancy


John Lethbridge, Managing Director of Cereco International Limited, has been designing and supplying entertainment lighting systems professionally since 1970.

John’s experience in the industry has covered lighting live performances, international concert tours, theatres, conferences, clubs, exhibitions, fashion shows, architectural installations and private residences.

John has worked as a designer, operator, installer and primarily as an international distributor for many World leading manufacturers of entertainment lighting equipment and effects.

imageAfter operating a semi-professional light show and multi-media performance group between 1968 and 1970, John created 'Cerebrum Lights', a performing light show, working with acts including Genesis, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Queen and countless other musical artistes.

Subsequently, John became Managing Director & Chairman of Cerebrum Lighting Ltd. following incorporation in 1976. Cerebrum Lighting subsequently became one of the premier distributors of entertainment lighting equipment in Europe until 2000, when John sold his controlling interest in the company to Lighting Technology Group Ltd.

John was also the founder and President of Celco Inc., based in Farmingdale, New York, a U.S. distributor of British entertainment technology products. The corporation was sold to Klark Teknik Group in 1988.

He was one of the founding committee members and a former vice-chairman of PLASA (Professional Lighting & Sound Association) and an active member of the ABTT (Association of British Theatre Technicians) Safety Committee.

imageWhilst John has a broad experience across many market sectors and disciplines, he has chosen to concentrate on designing, sourcing, project managing and commissioning complete turnkey lighting packages for private and public buildings and landscaping projects.

Cereco International do not supply equipment directly, but work closely with a carefully selected group of manufacturers to provide effective solutions to most lighting design projects, to a budget, within a deadline.

imageThe client will generally buy directly from the manufacturers selected by Cereco International. Cereco will work on either a daily fee basis or an agreed percentage of the total contract price.

In recent years, the focus has been primarily on projects in the Middle East, the largest and most prestigious being Bahrain Financial Harbour, but we are always willing to consider projects in other regions.
