Founder of Even2
René is in the event business since 1991 and started from scratch as a local rigger and stage builder while still being in his apprenticeship. He then set up his own company in 1994 which specialised in rigging and live event production. In 2001 René was one of the first riggers in Germany to pass the official rigging certificate of the FEA.
Before founding Even2 in 2007, he worked for some of the world’s biggest companies like Mercedes, SAP and Volkswagen and for international superstars like Michael Jackson, U2, Madonna and Kylie Minogue.

The office team
Operations Manager & HR
Alex has been with the company almost from the beginning, is responsible for the operations of the whole company and oversees our human resources department.
Sandeep holds a Bachelor of Commerce and over the last two decades he has managed the financial processes of many big companies across the UAE.
He handles our financial processes, such as monthly, quarterly and semi-annual statements, and constantly monitors our numbers.
Our rigger team
Artem is our all-rounder: He creates the technical drawings, inspects locations, prepares the calculations for the statics, and operates as a level 3 rigger. He either makes the setups on-site himself or coordinates the team accordingly, while making sure, that the logistics and the timing merge seemlessly together.
Marcel has been with us for more than ten years and is well known in our network.
Before he joined Even2, he already had several years of experience as a stage builder & rigger and has worked for top acts like AC/DC, Metallica, Rammstein and Linkin Park.
Haziq has been working in the UAE since 2008. His career started as a stage builder and over the last years he evolved from a grounder to a rigger and eventually became the head of the rigging department at his previous company. After joining Even2, he continues to learn and has since passed many more certificates.
