Ultratec Special Effects Continues to Grow Globally

Stage Directions • Changing Roles • March 30, 2021

With a plan for continued business growth across North America and Europe, Ultratec Special Effects is pleased to welcome two new additions to its sales team. Young-Hoo (Aaron) Dengra Ju has joined as the European sales lead for both special effects and pyrotechnics, while Kevin Allinder comes onboard as the newest sales representative serving the North American market, dedicated to special effects.

Dengra Ju is a seasoned event specialist with 15+ years of experience in the industry, not only in sales and project management, but also from a strategic operations and process planning perspective. He has managed and executed an impressive list of events of all sizes within Europe and internationally, including Asia and the Middle East, spanning from major sporting events to local festivals. His ability to speak multiple languages fluently, including German, English, French, and Spanish, will also be beneficial in connecting Ultratec Special Effects with existing and future customers across the continent.

With over five years in the industry, Allinder not only brings a high level of customer service experience, but also an extensive technical background, primarily in stage and live event lighting design and production. He also holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Purdue University, specializing in lighting design.

“Prior to the shutdown, our company was experiencing tremendous growth, we are eager to build on the strength of our current sales team with a continued focus on our customer relationships”, says Adrian Segeren, president of Ultratec. “Both individuals bring specialized expertise that will be an asset to the organization as we continue to penetrate existing markets.”
