Jeremy Fleming is the Managing Director of Stagekings, the company responsible for some of the most well-known temporary event structures of the past 6 years. Building stages and sets like the Opening Ceremony at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, the set for Ninja Warrior, the replica Edinburgh Castle at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Sydney, Shakespeare’s Pop up Globe Theatre in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and Ultra Music Festival.
Since Friday 13th March 2020 Jeremy has been navigating Stagekings through the most difficult time the event industry has ever experienced, since the complete shut-down of the industry at the outbreak of Covid-19. Facing the prospect of losing everything, he saw a chink in the supply chain and pivoted Stagekings to manufacture work from home office furniture, to fill the gap in the market and to keep Stagekings in business. By doing this he has reemployed staff, as well as employing more than 70 more out of work event crew to help in the manufacturing of over 30,000 pieces of IsoKing furniture. On top of this in just 11 months Stagekings donated over $80,000 to charity, including Support Act – the Heart and Hand of Australian Music, through the sales of the desks.
