Andrew Rodgers installed as department head
SOUTH AFRICA: Andrew Rodgers has joined DWR Distribution as head of its installation department, bringing aboard a wealth of experience in project management and maintenance contracts, as well as a vast array of technical skills. Having built a strong reputation in the industry, Mr Rodgers had previously worked alongside DWR founder Duncan Riley on numerous projects.
A UK-native, Mr Rodgers began his career in his home country in various maintenance and repair roles at several recording studios before relocating to South Africa in 1990 where he initially took on a maintenance position at Sun City’s Superbowl. He has since worked at Prosound in electronics design and maintenance and as a freelance project manager in South East Asia for Taffix Solutions at an audio recording studio. Joining Tadco in 1996, Mr Rodgers would work his way up to the role of technical director before establishing his own company in 2009: Fifty South Systems Integrators.
‘Andi has been a wonderful friend for close to 20 years now, where we often worked on the same projects,’ explained Mr Riley. ‘He is respected for his great workmanship and importantly for his humanity. This has been a calculated decision as the installation department has been laden with installs. We feel that if the correct people are in place, we will have a successful installation at the end of the project, and a happy client. It’s a privilege to welcome Andi to the family.’
