Riedel Communications has appointed Chris Johnson as general manager of Riedel Australia. Johnson first joined Riedel Australia in 2016 to head up the company’s rental operation. In the meantime, he has charted significant success in developing the business and delivering complex solutions to high-profile customers across Australia, including Vivid Sydney and the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Before joining Riedel, Johnson was based in the UK, where he operated his own business providing production engineering and design services to global clients such as the BBC and IAAF. In that role, he worked with Riedel on several events, including the 2012 Summer Games and the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
