Gencom Completes Management Buyout from Darren Frearson

Gencom Technology Limited has announced the completion of a Management Buyout process under which Sales Director Keith Bremner and Managing Director David Barnard have acquired 100 percent of shares in the company from previous owner, Darren Frearson.

Frearson acquired the Gencom Technology group of companies in 2013 and was CEO until 2015.

“David and Keith have done a fantastic job of running the New Zealand business and I am happy to be leaving the company in safe hands,” said Frearson.

When questioned about the future, Frearson says “I’m not planning on retiring just yet, but I will certainly be slowing down a little whilst continuing to invest in new and exciting opportunities in our industry.”

According to Barnard, “Darren has been a fantastic leader over the last five years, steering the company through some challenging times whilst expanding our scope of expertise, including into the RF space with the integration of another of his New Zealand companies, The Bridge Networks, in 2016”.

Bremner added, “Darren’s energy, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit has been an inspiration to us, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to take the company into its next phase of development. With the rapid technology and business changes occurring in the media industry, Gencom needs to continue evolving and expanding its scope of technical expertise and consultancy services. We’re looking forward to setting Gencom on a course for its next 50 years.”

Broadcast and media conference Media Technology Pacific (MTP) also forms part of the transaction. Barnard and Bremner will continue to produce the event in the future.
