Sydney, Australia (January 26, 2015)—RØDE Microphones’ Peter Freedman has been appointed to the Order of Australia. The founder and managing director was named in recognition for service to business, manufacturing and export, and philanthropic support of cultural events.
The Order of Australia was established by Her Majesty the Queen in February of 1975, as an Australian society of honor for the recognition of achievement or service to the community at large. It is considered to be one of the very highest acknowledgements that Australia can bestow upon an individual.
“To be recognized at the highest level, by the greatest country in the world, and for work within an industry you love, is for me the pinnacle of success,” said Freedman. “To say I am honored, and so very humbled, is an understatement.”
