AUTHOR: Inavate

Riedel Communications has announced the appointment of Cameron O'Neill as the company's director for the Asia-Pacific region. O'Neill will be based in Tokyo, working to build the Riedel presence there into an East Asian hub for Riedel design, sales, support, and service.

Thomas Riedel, CEO at Riedel Communications, said: “In the next five years, we will be ramping up our focus on Asia. Recent additions to our product portfolio make us more competitive in this market, and we're confident that Cameron can guide our regional operations in leveraging these innovations to take advantage of significant new business opportunities.”

O'Neill previously served as general manager of Riedel Australia for three years before taking on this new role. He already has a history working with Riedel's Japanese distributor, Otaritec, and attending Japan's largest trade show, Inter BEE. O'Neill also has traveled extensively in Japan and throughout Southeast Asia, and has cultivated a good working knowledge of the Japanese language.

O'Neill said: “Tokyo fills out our trio of Asian hubs, which also include Sydney and Singapore, and gives us a strong position from which to cover the Asia-Pacific region in its entirety. I look forward to consolidating our distribution networks across Asia and to supporting both new and existing customers at a much higher level.”
