Gear-Source, Inc. was brought to life in October of 2002 by lighting industry vet, Marcel Fairbairn. Prior to founding GearSource.com®, Marcel served as a Director for Martin Professional's US office for 7 years and also held VP roles with 2 other major Automated Lighting manufacturers. He has been in the Automated lighting world almost since it's inception and is widely known as an innovator and someone you can certainly trust with your business!
For the past 12 years, GearSource.com® has sold more (predominantly) used product in professional Stage Lighting, Pro Audio, Video and Staging than anyone. A large majority of the company's customers are "dealers" including production / rental companies and resellers who typically buy at slightly lower prices than end-users. At the same time, we value and cherish all of our End User clients and always do our best to improve their buying experience as well.
In creating GearSource.com®, the company made a promise to "clean up" the process of re-marketing used Production gear and has done exactly that in becoming the "eBay of the Production world". In our earliest years, several other Websites existed to market used gear, but none offered full service with e-commerce, manage your own listings, escrow style purchasing, complete product category selection nor other programs our company has since developed. A European office was opened in 2006 to further develop our presence worldwide.
Marcel Fairbairn: President / CEO
Marcel has spent more than 30 years in the Sound and Lighting markets. He started in 1985 selling A/V installations in Alberta, Canada. In 1991, he moved to Florida and took on sales for Martin (lighting) US distributor, Tracoman. This proved to be a moment that changed the future for Marcel, Martin and likely the industry as a whole. Marcel continues to be the visionary behind GearSource and is actively involved in Sales, Marketing, Web Planning and overall company direction.
