Riedel Communications has promoted Vincent Lambert to general manager for Riedel Japan and South Korea. Moving into his new role after serving for four years as Riedel’s head of global system consulting, Lambert reports to APAC director Simon Roehrs.
As head of global system consulting, Lambert grew a team of 10 customer service engineers into a 33-person technical presales department focused on strategic, structured, high-performing commercial support. Prior to that, he served as system consulting manager for Riedel APAC in Japan. Other previous positions include manager of operations and technology at Walt Disney Television Japan, sales and product management functions at FOR-A in Japan, as well as several broadcast engineering roles in London. Lambert attended Columbia Business School in New York City, London Business School in the U.K., and Hong Kong University, where he received an executive MBA through a joint global program. He also holds a bachelor’s degree with honours in broadcast engineering from John Moores University in Liverpool, U.K.
Lambert takes the helm of a Tokyo-based operation that has grown significantly since its opening five years ago. In 2018, Riedel Japan moved to a spacious new headquarters located between the popular Shinjuku and Shibuya districts and near the new National Stadium. The Tokyo facility, designed to foster collaboration and connection with APAC clients, is situated near Riedel’s long-term local partner Otaritec.
