Paul Rivens, Riedel Communications General Manager, U.K said, “I enjoyed the immense honour of being a Batonbearer for Glasgow 2014, and I’m proud to be working closely with the organizers of Birmingham 2022 to bring their vision of the fantastic event to fruition. Riedel and Commonwealth Games have a strong relationship built on a long history.
