Building its North American team, Riedel Communications has hired Zach Funk and Justin McClellan as Service & Support Engineers in its North America Technical Services department.

Funk’s previous work with Riedel includes a year as a logistics specialist with the company, and as a freelance systems technician he collaborated with Riedel in setting up and configuring Riedel MediorNet systems for a large media organisation’s trade show booth and for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games. Funk’s industry experience also includes the role of Technical Director at Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette, Colorado; Lead Audio Engineer at Mars Hill Church in Seattle; System Integration Wireman at Beck Associates in Denver; and Live Sound Technician at Azusa Pacific University.

During this time he gained experience working on a wide array of audio consoles, intercom systems, and control software systems. McClellan began his career at Alford Media Services, where he built and refined his skills as both an RF technician and a communications technician. He was instrumental in upgrading Alford’s communications systems to Riedel Artist, and led the training of in-house and freelance staff on Riedel equipment.

‘The technical expertise that Zach and Justin bring to the table is exceptional, including a great deal of hands-on work with Riedel systems, as well as other key systems common in live-production environments,’ says Head of Technical Sales & Support, Jeremy Lommori. ‘Working from our offices and on site, they will be invaluable technical support resources for our customers.’
