Dan Riley with sons Duncan and Bruce
South Africa - Dan Riley has confirmed his retirement from DWR Distribution. A friend to all, Dan Riley has been in the industry for over 30 years and was one of the first people in South Africa to offer sales and support for 'Rank Strand' as it was known. He has been involved with a list of prominent theatre installations and the owners of many rental companies purchased their very first lighting equipment from him.

A DWR statement says, "Dan, as most know, is the father of Duncan and Bruce Riley, who have followed in his footsteps, working in the same industry as he did, and more importantly, learning from him how to have great people skills. Dan has walked his road with ethics, has always been supportive to others and no one can deny his great sense of humour.

"Three years ago Dan joined DWR Distribution in sales. He was instrumental with dealing with theatres and played a huge roll when it came to securing tenders for installations, such as The Playhouse Company, The Atterbury Theatre and the Baxter Theatre and The Sandton Protea Court, to mention a few highlights.

"Wonderful and exciting times await the Rileys and while DWR Distribution wishes them every happiness, please know Dan, that we miss you. It was a privilege for us to work with you and we appreciate everything you did and meant to us."
