DWR welcomes Mac to the team

South African distributor, DWR Distribution, is delighted to welcome Motlotlo (aka Mac) Makhobotloane, a sound, lighting and product specialist, to the sales team. “Mac no sooner arrived, and we threw him into the deep end at our AV Open day and he hasn’t stopped since,” smiles Robert Izzett, head of sales at DWR. "With a wealth of knowledge and experience, his primary role will be internal sales, and thereafter, will assist with customer support, demonstrations and training when needed." Mac enrolled and obtained his Baccalaureus Technologiae: Performing Arts Technology – Theatre Lighting from the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT). He concedes that while he joined the university to focus on audio engineering ‐ intending to start up a recording studio ‐lighting kept knocking on his door until he could no longer ignore it. After graduating, he went on to lighting and designing theatrical productions such as Slindile Mthembu’s “Milked Voice” and “Igama?”, Leanetse Seekoe’s “4 cups tbsp” and Mcebi Bhayi’s “Iqhawe Elignaphakati” besides other lighting projects. His career included working at rental company MGG for a short stint where he gained practical insight to technical, rigging and setti ng up productions, and steppingstones saw him take on the role of Lighting Technical support at Prosound (2015‐2018) and then as a Technical Sales Administrator at Electrosonic SA (2018‐2021). “It’s a new chapter and what excites me is getti ng to know everyone at DWR on a personal level,” said Mac. “I get my gratitude when being able to provide people with applicable solutions and being able to empower and educate others, be it through a sale, the commissioning and handing over of a system, or assisting with training.” Duncan Riley of DWR concurs, “I’m really happy to have Mac onboard and look forward to a great future together. I know he will complement the team with his passion for people and a great love for the industry.”
