Renaud Lavoie to fast forward Riedel into IP Future

Riedel Communications has appointed Renaud Lavoie to the newly created position of senior vice president of technology. Reporting directly to CEO and founder Thomas Riedel, Lavoie will work to drive technological innovation, advance Riedel's video solutions portfolio and strengthen the company's expertise in IP-enabled hardware and software. He moves into this strategic new role having served for almost a year as the MD for Riedel Montreal. As senior vice president of technology, Lavoie aims to increase interaction between Riedel's research teams by managing a rotating group of expert engineers from different R&D disciplines.

"With our media and entertainment customers undergoing major disruptive change as they embark on the transition to IP, it's more important than ever to strengthen our engineering teams doing cutting-edge research and development,” commented Thomas Riedel. “Renaud is the ideal leader to focus some of the most creative minds of our industry on this effort. As the founder of Embrionix, Renaud pioneered the use of SFP modules for signal processing, contributed to nearly 40 patents and remains one of the world's most respected experts in his field. In this new position, he will be able to unleash his potential to the fullest extent while also continuing his research and work as an expert consultant, educator and key contributor to Riedel white papers and technology events."

Lavoie was named MD of Riedel Montreal upon Riedel's acquisition of Embrionix. Prior to creating Embrionix, he founded and served as president of electronics consulting company, Brioconcept. Additionally, he taught for more than nine years as an adjunct professor at École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), a division of the Université du Québec. Lavoie also served as a senior hardware designer for Miranda Technologies and co-founded an esports performance company, GScience.

"I am pleased with the trust and confidence that the Riedel team has in my abilities to assume this new role, which is dedicated to our efforts to shape future workflows for the broadcast, entertainment and AV industries," Lavoie commented. "I look forward to keep exploring untapped possibilities in the realm of IP technology with the talented Riedel R&D team — the best and the brightest in the field."
