Meet Davar’s Productions Manager – Riaan
Riaan de Lange has been part of the Davar recording team for 8 years and currently serves as our Productions Manager. He lives with his wife, Marisa, and daughter in Mosselbay, South Africa.
Can you explain what you do at Davar?
For God’s glory and in my role as Productions Manager, I take care of the various contracts needed for text permissions from text copyright holders, production service contracts with studio partners and licensing of Davar audio to distribution partners. Along with searching for and engaging new studio partners when needed, I work closely with our established production coordinators around the world to help achieve our production objectives, which includes overseeing Davar’s recording projects from the pre-production phase through to completion and publication.
What is your favorite part of the work you do?
Getting new recordings started with our precious production teams, especially for language groups who have no audio scripture available in their language.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
(From youngest to older) Race car driver, professional cricket player, musician, theatre director and later attorney – on the rare occasions when sense prevailed.
If you could have three people over for dinner, who would you invite?
The apostle Paul, David Pawson (an evangelical minister, writer and prominent Bible teacher in the UK), and Jamie Oliver (to do the cooking as well).
We are very grateful for Riaan’s dedication, commitment to excellence and his heart for the Lord.
