Riley has spent over 15 years working on the ground throughout multiple Asian countries. He boasts a strong cultural understanding of tourism and leisure infrastructure developments throughout the region.
Riley’s previous work with an Australian design and construction group brought him into regular contact with Village Roadshow, in whose theme park division he is now a leading player.
His experience in Asia has been important in helping Village get a number of projects off the ground outside its native Australia, notably the new Wet ‘n’ Wild Haikou waterpark in China. Several other projects are currently in either planning, construction or pre-opening phases.
Riley is also the founding chairman of both the Asia Pacific Government Relations Committee and the Asian Manufacturers & Suppliers Committee at IAAPA.
