Chris Headlam » Managing Director »
+44 207 501 6868

Chris founded Orbital in 1993 from a long sound engineering background in the theatre and conference industries.

He lives in the country south of London with Niki and sons Daniel & Ken, surrounded by an ever changing accompaniment of animals both large and small.

Chris is gradually mastering the complex art of gardening but unexpectedly developed a mid-life petrol head crisis - resulting in him successfully racing cars that have ridiculous engines.
