THIS IS US!
M&M Production Management was founded in 2006 by Ola Melzig and Joan Lyman. The company focus is on production management and marketing.
Ola Melzig started as a stagehand, working on locals shows in Stockholm 1989, taking the long way and advancing to forklift driver, runner, production assistant, lighting tech, backline tech and even catering assistant. He learned every step of productions in detail, and this knowledge has been a great asset to him in what he’s doing today. Over the last 20 years he has production managed high profile shows such as the Eurovision Song Contest, The Commonwealth Games and The Nobel Prize Awards, and is one of the most renowned and respected Production Managers/ Technical Directors in the industry, known for putting the needs of the production above his own. In February 2017, he was awarded Production Manager of the year at the annual TPI Awards in London. He is currently in the early production phases of The American Song Contest.
