Riedel announces ANZ general manager


Riedel Communications has promoted Chris Johnson to the role of general manager at Riedel Australia. He will oversee operations in Australia and New Zealand, taking over from John Bell, who is remaining as a non-executive director during a transitional period.

Before joining Riedel in 2016, Johnson worked on his own business in the UK, providing production engineering and design services to companies such as the BBC and IAAF. He worked with Riedel on several occasions including the 2012 Summer Games and the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Johnson moved to Australia in 2016 to lead Riedel's rental business. Since then, he has developed the business and delivered a range of solutions to high-profile customers across Australia, including Vivid Sydney and the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

‘Riedel Australia remains one of the key hubs for our company globally, and it has been a launching point for our growth into Asia,’ said Cameron O’Neill, director of the Asia Pacific region at Riedel Communications. ‘As the region grows, we’ve worked on building a strong leadership pipeline in Australia. Chris has not only been fundamental in that effort, but his technical expertise and keen understanding of our customers’ requirements make him the ideal professional to step into this important position.’

Johnson added: ‘It’s been an exciting few years at Riedel Australia as we’ve grown our rental operations, and I’m thrilled to continue that work across the rest of our business here in Australia and New Zealand. The broadcast and events industries are going through some really big changes at the moment, and we’re fortunate to be able to help our clients navigate those changes with our solutions. We’re in a unique position to be able to directly provide both the technology and the operational support that our customers need.’
