Siedel Joins Freeman

Steve Bury, senior vice-president of Sales, Freeman Audio Visual Canada, has announced the appointment of Chris Siedel to the position of regional director, Strategic Partnerships for Eastern Canada. He will be based in Freeman’s Toronto office.

“In this role, Chris will develop new business partnerships for us with hotels, convention centres, and alternative meeting venues,” said Bury. “This new role reflects our commitment to the future of this important part of our business. Chris’s mandate will cover Eastern Canada, with particular focus on Ontario and Quebec.”

“Chris brings to the role a strong background in hotel business, where he spent most of his career working for various Canadian hotel companies.  He also worked in the AV industry for 3 years prior to joining Freeman last year, so this gives him a solid understanding of both sides of the venue business,” said Bury.

Siedel said that he is very excited about his new role with Freeman Audio Visual. “Prior to my new role, I was working very closely with our venue partners and colleagues in our existing facilities.  In my new role my goal is to focus on new and existing partnerships while continuing to enhance customer relations with our venue customers,” he said.
