Meet the Crew–James Gately

Jimmy is ILC’s Assistant Warehouse Manager.

” My position here at ILC varies daily but my main job is Assistant Warehouse Manager, supervising the completion of all outbound orders. I check in daily with the multiple departments in the shop, verifying that all equipment has made it onto the orders, then properly loaded onto the trucks.

I have been involved with lighting for about 5 years now, starting with a Theatre Lighting Degree from Columbia College Chicago. Lighting Production and Design is a true passion of mine and working at ILC has really helped fuel that fire. I have access to top of the line gear and a wealth of knowledge around me to help build ideas and creativity. ILC has been a huge help and contributor to my growth and success in my career.

A few favorite projects that I have been involved in here at ILC, is the Morton Arboretum, Gateway for Cancer Gala at Navy Pier, and even some prep work for the past Superbowl. Being involved in shows of this scale makes me realize how much of an impact our work makes, and helps drive my passion even further.” -James Gately
