Diversified Retires Rutledge Brand
The name Rutledge, synonymous with Australian AV integration, has been officially retired.
Diversified announces the official rebranding of its wholly-owned Australian subsidiary, Rutledge AV, A Diversified Company. Since acquiring Rutledge AV in April 2019, Diversified has established strong operations in Australia and reinforced its capabilities in the Oceanic and APAC regions.
“The journey has already been very rewarding,” says Kevin Collins, Diversified’s President. “We have been part of some remarkable and globally-recognised projects, such as the award-winning audio upgrade for the Melbourne Cricket Ground. At the heart of it, we have been able to share our passion for technology and promote next generation solutions for local and multi-national clients who have operations in the Oceanic region.”
Committed to being a global organisation specialising in supporting local needs, Australian-based clients can now leverage Diversified’s complete and comprehensive portfolio of global services and solutions, while retaining a local level of on-site technical support and consultancy. Diversified will continue to deliver exceptional service to its clients across Australia and maintain the track record of exemplary success that Rutledge AV has delivered since 1979.
While the rebrand is a milestone in the 41-year history of the Australian-based company, the change comes at a challenging time across the world as we continue to face the uncertainty of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
“All around the globe, our Diversified teams are rising to the challenge and helping our clients deploy the technology solutions they need during this pandemic. Becoming united under one brand will help us weather the COVID-19 storm,” comments Andrew Morrice, Diversified’s senior leader in Australia. “It will ensure that we are able to take up new opportunities, continue to support our employees and clients worldwide, and be ready to face new challenges in the future, together as a unified global workforce.”
Expanding the Diversified team and services in Australia has bolstered the Diversified Global Alliance–the 24/7 Global Service Center that offers follow-the-sun support capabilities and give regional network operation centres around the world.
Diversified will continue to be a trusted partner for its Australian clients, supporting Rutledge AV’s robust client-base with Diversified’s expansive portfolio of dynamic offerings, and adding incremental value to their organisations.
