Matthew Staunton

Wayne's eldest son, a true "Staunton", Matt has grown up on Sold Out event sites his entire life.

Matt is our leader in all things ‘mechanical’  both on site and in the warehouse, and is constantly putting his years of event and high level rigging experience to use finding new solutions through expert problem solving. Similar to Thomas, Matt ventured from Sold Out in pursuit of travel which led to him being lead deckhand on a tall ship in Greece. Upon his return to Australia, Matt furthered his practical qualifications, working as both a lead rigger and a crane supervisor in the mines in WA.

Returning to Sold Out, Matt is now the head of our warehouse operations team, and on a day to day basis facilitates all things storage, freight, packing, event equipment and maintenance. We are yet to discover a practical problem Matt hasn’t solved, and it is with this ability that he carries out the management of on-site event operations and installations at all our event sites with such value.

Away from work, Matt enjoys spending time with his young family, which includes his new ute! He is also quite the movie buff, and can tell you anything you need to know about 21st century films, particularly, Pirates of the Caribbean!
