Meet Show Support’s all time record holder of most hours undertaken in the Southern State of Victoria and our latest Immortal – the Man, the Legend … Ben Dewhurst.
Ben has been a Showie since 2006 and adds a wealth of value and experience to the Victorian SHS team.
This outstanding Crew Member was recently admitted into the lofty heights of SHS Immortality.
“I was pretty stoked,” Ben said, recalling the moment he received the notification while working on a gig at the Plenary. “I saw the SHS text go off and when I read it, I couldn’t wipe the smile of my face. People were looking at me oddly, but it meant so much to me. I just couldn’t lose that cheesy grin.”
As a reward for long, loyal service, Show Support has awarded Ben with a financial fund to obtain an Advanced Rigging qualification, which he is currently studying for.
A member of the Victorian Leadership Team, Ben holds many qualifications and workplace licenses including a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Production, Elevated Work Platform, Open Cable, Test and Tag & Forklift.
“The best part of working for Show Support is the fact that I can tailor my work around my lifestyle. No rocking up to the same office day in/day out. And working with so many different people in different environments allows you to create very enjoyable workplace relationships.” After a pause Ben jokes: “But you always turn up to work just as the parties are finishing.”
SHS Operations and Crew wishes Ben all the best with his studies and continued illustrious career at Show Support Pty Ltd.
