By Designteam, 27 September, 2017


21 September 2017 marked a significant occasion in the history of Designteam, with its fearless leader Jan van den Berg officially announcing his retirement from the business he started 27 years ago. Current General Manager Dominic Le Roy has been announced as the new owner and Managing Director of Designteam.


Jan started the business in 1990 with his wife Joanne, and as a formidable team they have worked with business of all sizes and several government agencies. Their hard work and dedication has seen the company go from strength to strength, and they are well-known and well-respected within the Australian exhibition and events industry.

As a trained industrial designer, Jan recognised the unique experience he could bring to the exhibition industry in terms of introducing innovative ideas and stimulating design to the practicality and functionality required in the exhibition hall. Never afraid to think outside the square and push creative boundaries, Jan has built a reputation for creative and original design, and outstanding attention to detail in the execution.

“Having been an active member of the exhibition industry for the last 27 years it is paramount for me to continue the momentum of Designteam as a leader in its field. I am extremely proud of the dedicated team we have and am delighted to have found Dominic to be our next leader, capable of taking Designteam into the future. I will continue to mentor our team where necessary and to take great interest in its future achievements.”

Designteam’s new owner and Managing Director, Dominic Le Roy, has worked at the company for the last eight years. As General Manager, he was instrumental in the rebrand of Designteam in 2015, repositioning the company’s services to ensure clients receive the best possible design, service, and delivery.

Since he commenced at Designteam, Dominic has utilised his passion for creative problem-solving, and dedication to quality outcomes for his clients, to build long-term relationships and encourage them to think outside the box in their approach to their target markets.

“I am thrilled with the opportunity to continue Jan’s legacy of design thinking and high-quality execution. We have a great team of people at Designteam, and we will continue growing the business and expand our client base over the long term. We have been through an incredibly exciting period since our rebrand in 2015, exploring new technologies and how to apply them to the work we do, and continually looking for innovative ways to serve our clients. I look forward to developing even stronger relationships with our clients, organisers and suppliers.”

As a long-term employee, Dominic has a solid understanding of the company, its culture and client base, and this will continue Designteam’s forward momentum throughout the transition period. Jan will continue as Executive Chairman of the Designteam Board.

Thank you to all of our industry colleagues, suppliers and our much-loved clients – without you, we simply would not exist. We thank you for your continuing support and we look forward to working harder than ever to ensure outstanding results for everyone we work with.
