Gordon Hyndford and Ted Fowler launched 2XD in 2013 after Ted’s longtime success as principal of renowned stage lighting firm, Ed & Ted’s Excellent Lighting. Ed & Ted’s ultimately merged with one of the world leaders in live event production, where Ted was an executive and led a staff of 125 before teaming up with Gordon.
Gordon brought to 2XD his skill in managing every aspect of installing and operating large, complex events. The two partners assembled a powerful network of seasoned professionals and industry-leading companies to join them in creating, producing, and managing major global events, using the latest techniques and technology.
