After a 30-year career in the events industry, including a
19-year tenure as Managing Director of AV1, Keith Wootton is embarking on a new chapter.

Keith has now passed the mantle of Managing Director to long-term team member Nigel Mintern.

Under Keith’s visionary leadership, AV1 has become a leading force in audio visual and technical production for business events in Australia. As he steps back from the day-to-day operations, Keith is set to manage his business portfolio, which includes AV1, Sprintr, and an upcoming video-first creative studio, launching later this year.

During the announcement made to its customers and invited guests at AV1’s Long Summer Lunch, Keith said, “I am delighted to hand AV1 over to Nigel. Nigel has a broad knowledge of the business as well as a strong understanding of our technology. He is well respected by clients and staff. Everyone loves working with Nigel.”

Nigel Mintern, the newly appointed Managing Director, brings a wealth of technical expertise and a keen client focus to the role. “I am honoured and excited to lead AV1 into this new era. Keith’s legacy is undeniable. I am thankful for the opportunity to build upon the strong foundation he has laid, steering the company toward continued growth and success. 

AV1 will continue its commitment to technical excellence and client satisfaction, and I look forward to catching up with our customers to discuss how AV1 can continue to deliver outstanding service and premium experiences for clients and stakeholders.” 

Commenting on this new phase of his career, Keith said, “As I delve into a broader portfolio, including our new creative venture, I am eager to connect with our valued customers, partners, and pioneers in the events industry. This is a time for creative exploration and strategic planning, and I am open to new ideas and opportunities that align with our vision for the future. If you’re interested in working together, please reach out.”

As AV1 embraces this leadership transition, the company remains dedicated to delivering exceptional experiences for its clients. Keith and Nigel both envision a future where AV1 continues to be a trailblazer in the events industry, setting new standards and achieving greater milestones.
