Allen Cook

Allen Cook

Founder & CEO

“Do the job, plus a little bit more.”

Our Fearless Leader.  Since its​ inception in 2003, Allen Cook has positioned TOURtech as the defacto standard for event IT. As an​ expert in event technology, he is always looking ahead to the future of the industry.

With 27+ years of experience including an academic background in Technical Theater and early career experience as a Lighting Designer with Merv Griffin Event Productions, he saw an unmet market need to provide temporary networking services to touring organizations.

Allen was tapped for his first major touring IT role on Phil Collins’ First Final Farewell Tour in 2004 and his system racks have since toured the world with dozens of artists. From there, he built a name (as TOURtech) on the production side of temporary networking, as well as on the consumer side with mobile Wi-Fi services for special events of all sizes and industries.  His relentless drive to advance the state of the art continues…

Jeremy Rollinson

Jeremy Rollinson

Chief Technology Officer

Rollinson has been thinking about creating and delivering technology solutions for live events around the world since 2006 and has had ties with TOURtech since the early days of the company.  He says, “One day I was a regular Wi-Fi engineer, the next I was an Event Wi-Fi Engineer. It was at Latitude Festival in England and the local telco couldn’t connect the box office. The first, but by no means the last, critical problem we would solve using wireless technology.”

“Live events present unique challenges, and as technology moves from the production office to the audience, those challenges continue to grow. From high pressure product launches to connecting brands and performers with their fans, we get to explore what is possible.”

CEO & Founder Allen Cook credits Rollinson with playing an instrumental role in developing many of the systems and processes that put TOURtech on the map, some of which are still in place today.  In addition to his technical know-how, Jeremy also has a deep understanding of sponsorship side of the event industry, which is just one of the many new areas that TOURtech will be focusing on in the years to come.
