Brendan Callinan, said in a letter to dealers, “While this does not end my Roland career, it does mark the end of an era, having Roland’s Australian business as my primary focus. I celebrated 25 years at RCA in September last year and am proud of our achievements through that period and know that I hand this business over to Nick in great shape. Nick has been a key member of the senior management team over recent years and has played a big part in our development, so there is every reason to expect us to continue to grow, develop and evolve under his leadership. Matt too brings a wealth of MI experience through almost 10 years with NZ Rockshop”.
