AVIXA appoints Oceania regional manager

AVIXA has announced the appointment of Ben Caswell as the regional manager for AVIXA Oceania. Effective January 2018, Caswell will lead the association's membership services, certification, and education program in Oceania, as well as the Australia Advisory Group.

Prior to joining AVIXA, Caswell led the AV team at Sydney-based Knox Grammar School, where he was the inspiration and founder of the Global Tech Crew concept. The team was started by a group of secondary-level students who discovered their common interest in anything AV. The Global Tech Group enables students to live their passion by creating AV experiences for the school's events.

Jonathan Seller, senior director of development for Asia Pacific at AVIXA, said: “We are delighted to welcome Ben to the AVIXA team in Oceania. With his enthusiasm for the AV industry, commitment to helping others advance in their careers, and 17 years in professional AV, he brings invaluable field experience to AVIXA. This is especially important, as it truly reflects what our industry association stands for. Ben has in-depth understanding of what AV professionals do, as well as the experiences they create for their customers."

Caswell said: “I'm absolutely thrilled to join AVIXA at this exciting time in the association's history. I've always dreamt about having the ability to leverage my passion for AV and professional development in a way that lights the path for our industry's future generations. As we evolve and mature as an industry, being able to aid and support its growth is not only an honour, but an opportunity for me to create a legacy that we can all be proud of. I am a people person and am all about creating exceptional experiences, hence I am looking forward to meeting and collaborating with all facets of Oceania's AV industry."
