Richard Wahl recently joined the company as a senior technology consultant.

Wahl's wealth of experience in digital workplace integration encompasses meeting room technology, digital signage networks, distributed audio and video networks and customised presentation and entertainment spaces.

He will also assist Kodum clients with overall building technology solutions, including Building Management Systems, lighting and access control and security systems.

Wahl's expertise in Hotel IPTV and Building Integration, supported by the fact that Kodum is a certified KNX technology partner, means there's plenty of value that Richard can offer the New Zealand market.

He's particularly excited at the prospect of being able to help clients with bespoke solutions by leveraging Kodum's status as an accredited partner for many leading global technology providers, such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom and Crestron.

Kodum NZ sales director Stephen Ward says that having Wahl on board is further proof of Kodum's commitment to providing clients with good outcomes through tailored technology solutions.

"Richard avoids a one-size-fits-all approach," Ward says.

"He takes the time to truly understand a client's requirements so that we can then deliver the right technology stack."

He adds that Wahl is able to translate technically-complex system designs into everyday speak. "It's a tremendous help for clients who may not be technically proficient."

Wahl will work with organisations throughout New Zealand, focusing on the corporate, commercial, education and hospitality sectors (where he'll be assisting with Guest Room Entertainment Systems, Guest Room Management Systems and High Speed Internet Access). He'll also be providing AV and IT solutions to houses of worship.
