WUPPERTAL, Germany — Riedel Communications, a manufacturer of video, audio, data, intercom products and communications networks, today announced that Daniel Huard, who previously served as the company’s sales manager for Canada, has taken on a larger role that includes oversight of the Northeast United States. In this new capacity, Huard will work closely with key Riedel clients that include broadcast networks in New York, as well as ESPN in Connecticut.
“Since he joined the company in 2013, Daniel has proved to be an excellent fit for our North American sales operations,” said Christopher Street, general manager for North and Central America at Riedel Communications. “As we anticipated, he has been able to leverage his experience, knowledge, and connections to strengthen our business in Canada, and we’re confident that he will find the same success as he takes on key markets and clients in the Northeast United States.”
Prior to joining Riedel, Huard owned and operated DHH, an equipment sales agency for brands including Riedel, Sennheiser, Stagetec, L-Acoustics, Digigram and Neumann. Under his leadership, DHH provided solutions to Canadian-centric broadcasters that include CBC, Global TV, CTV, Rogers and TVA. Huard’s company also supplied equipment to Cirque du Soleil, Celine Dion, and various professional equipment rental houses. In his earlier role as vice president of TV production for Montreal-based group Pram, he was responsible for line production of Surprise sur Prise in France and the United States, as well as for management of the company’s mobile production units.
