Marcel Fairbairn

Gear Source
Founder/CEO
I started as a musician in my teens, and travelled with several bands. When I (quickly) realized that wasn't going to get me rich, I honed my selling skills in music retail - selling guitars, drums, sound systems, etc. That transitioned me to the lighting biz, where I ended up with Martin Professional in Miami. Rising up through the ranks with Martin, I topped out as VP of Sales and Marketing - and was responsible for bringing that company into concert touring, and professional rentals. A brief stop at High End, then as Owner of Coemar Distributor, Coemar USA, I burned myself out on Automated Lighting sales / management. 

Upon exiting the Coemar USA parent, I founded GearSource.com®, GearSourceEurope.com® and GearSourceMexico.com®. Most recently I've developed a new site focused on organizing the resale market for professional Kart Racing products. KartingSource.com® was recently licensed to a leading Karting company and will grow to be the primary place to buy and sell karting products.

While our web businesses continue to grow and expand into global markets, I have also focused on building another global brand, LED Source®. In fact, we were one of the very first companies focused exclusively on the sale of LED products in the early 2000's. We were also the first LED company in the entire world to grow their business via our rapidly growing Franchise model where the company continues to focus today. 

Specialties: I am a sales pro, and entrepreneur by every definition. Several times in my life, I've put everything on the line to prove my methods. With each business, I've been fortunate to surround myself with great teams and I have been allowed to be the visionary CEO. We continue growing, and welcome new opportunities with passion. The future looks bright!I started as a musician in my teens, and travelled with several bands.
