WUPPERTAL, Germany—Riedel Communications has announced that Renaud Lavoie will take over the newly created position of senior vice president of Technology. Lavoie, who will now report directly to CEO and founder Thomas Riedel, was most recently the managing director of Riedel Montreal.

Lavoie will be responsible for driving technological innovation, advancing Riedel’s video solutions portfolio and strengthening the company’s IP-enabled hardware and software.
