Los Angeles, March 3, 2023 – RatPac Controls, the leading provider of silent dimmers, data distribution, and wireless DMX control products for the motion picture lighting industry, announced that Founder and Chief Innovation Officer Craig Brink is stepping down after 12 years with the company.

Since its inception in 2011, RatPac Controls has experienced tremendous success with its innovative approach to lighting controls. RatPac Controls has expanded its portfolio to over 25 products, including silent dimming, data distribution, and wireless DMX control products. Craig Brink’s contributions helped change how gaffers rig and control lights on film and TV sets and earned RatPac Controls its reputation as an industry leader.

Before founding RatPac Controls, Craig Brink worked as a rigging gaffer, with credits including The Big Lebowski, The Fast, and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and Fracture. His experience gave him unique insights into the customers’ needs, which he used to help develop industry-leading, time-saving products and grow RatPac Controls into one of the most successful companies in the motion picture equipment industry.

Craig Brink stated, “RatPac Controls has grown tremendously over the last 12 years. We’ve built a deep and talented team focused on innovation, new product development, and customer satisfaction. It’s time for me to move on and let our team continue their great work. I will miss the RatPac Controls family, but I know the company is in great hands as it moves forward.”

RatPac Controls’ EVP of Sales and Marketing, Nick Stabile, stated, “It was an honor to build this company with Craig. We will miss Craig’s passion for lighting controls, and we wish him all the best.”
