Eveleens joined Ridel in 2018 as director of business development for video. Before that, he served as CEO of Axon and GM of the camera division at Grass Valley. As COO he will oversee all aspects of Riedel’s production, logistics, and supply chain.

Url has worked on the broadcaster, system integrator, and manufacturer side. Previous roles include managing director and CSO of Qvest, as well as head of global product management at Vizrt and chief product officer for Grass Valley. In his new role at Riedel, he will be responsible for driving the company’s global commercial strategy, working closely with Riedel’s customer-facing teams, including global sales, customer success, sales operations, and business development, to identify new market opportunities and develop effective go-to-market strategies.

Zimmermann, Riedel’s new executive director of digital transformation, was previously the company’s executive director of manufacturing operations. In his new role, he will lead the development and implementation of the company’s digital strategy.

“I am thrilled to welcome Jan, Daniel, and Oliver to their new roles within our management team,” said Hoerée. “Our mission is to build the live production tools that make our customers shine. Just six months ago, we expanded our portfolio with replay, ingest, and all-in-one production solutions that can run on-prem, in a data centre, or in the cloud.

“The expertise and experience that Jan and Daniel bring on board will be invaluable as we continue to innovate and grow, offering more services and new business models to our customers, while with Oliver we will make great strides on our path to digital transformation, resulting in a unique customer experience.”
