From Pitman’s People to Contraband Crew

Who we were...

Pitman’s People was founded in 2001 and became an established, bespoke service working to create outstanding events by drawing together the best professionals in the business.

Pitman’s People was established by managing director, Mr Pitman who saw a need for skilled, professional, personable event infrastructure and house of front staff in London and Nationally. Pitman’s People primarily started working with an intimate client base which quickly grew as relationships within the music industry became established, working on most of the major music and sporting experiences in the UK and Europe during the last decade. The growing establishment of Pitman’s People saw it climb, becoming a leader in Event HROL – Human Resources, Operations and Logistics.

Some of the greatest highlights of Pitman’s People ‘s era includes working closely towards several landmark events such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics which required unique operations management to facilitate the smooth running of 302 sporting events.
