Jason Williams


Starting as a trainee theatre electrician in London alongside running his own part-time stage lighting business, assisting in a recording studio and supporting graduate directors with film lighting at the Royal College of Art in Kensington Gore. Jason pursued his passion for live music and sound engineering by transforming a former ballroom back into a nationally acclaimed reggae & ska venue, where he worked with many world-famous musicians & groups.

In 1999 he accepted an offer to play his part in the millennium celebrations as a senior engineer at the Millennium Dome where he was responsible for the technical design, construction and operation of Skyscape, the largest conventional cinema & music venue ever built in the UK.

Following a successful 10 years within Arts & Entertainment Jason focused on providing audio visual expertise in the corporate sector where he managed the presentation and video conferencing department for Goldman Sachs from the former daily mail Building in Fleet Street, London. His talents were soon recognised across the city, and he was recruited by a US-based company (PSAV) providing hospitality services across the UK where he headed up the Purchasing & Training (100+ Technicians) department and finally became Facilities director with responsibilities for 80+ luxury hotels including The Savoy, The Dorchester, and two of London’s famous exhibition Centres - Earls Court & Olympia.

In 2003 Jason met the now-late Peter Boizot (Founder of Pizza Express) and helped him complete the Broadway Theatre Refurbishment in Peterborough, rising from technical director to general manager before accepting a consultancy assignment for Carnival Cruises where he helped to make the Ocean Village 24/7 party ship brand a success.

Experts in Audio and Video

Jason continued building his technology skill set when he joined Brahler as UK Sales Manager toward the end of the noughties and spent several years designing, supplying, and installing interpretation training suites for 10+ universities across the UK. He also played a key part in rolling out the Digital Audio and Transcription Services replacing the traditional tape recording of judicial hearings in 900+ Criminal Courts across England, Scotland and Wales with digital equipment.

Some of Jason’s work within the Ministry of Justice was implemented into the Defence Fixed Telecommunications Service, then operated by BT and he was asked to design and supply several bespoke cutting-edge audio projects within military environments for the Ministry of Defence.

After a short diversion from engineering side of the business working in Business development manufacturers, distributors and systems integrators Jason took on the challenge of growing Excite Audio Visual Limited across many different verticals and seeking out new niches for the business. His recent efforts see Excite moving into the fields of IOT, Product Manufacture, and R&D within the environmental and health care markets.
