Senior Appointments at Global Television18-Jun-2012
Global Television today announced two senior appointments that will further strengthen the company's best-in-market client service.
Andries Theron joins Global in the newly-created role of General Manager – Outside Broadcast Services, effective 1 July.
Concurrently, Global has promoted Adam Miller to General Manager – Project Services from his previous role of Operations Manager – Outside Broadcast, Melbourne, with immediate effect.
Revered across the industry, Theron has most recently been a senior consultant to Gearhouse Broadcast, delivering the June Rugby Test series to host broadcaster FOX Sports.
Global's Technical Managers will report to him, enhancing the company's market-leading outside broadcast (OB) services, from the earliest quoting stage through to technical specifications, crewing and faultless delivery to-air. Theron will also train and develop up-and-coming Global talent, entrenching Global's client-focused ethos.
A television industry veteran with more than 25 years' experience, Miller is renowned for his technical and management capabilities. His expanded role encompasses national responsibilities for the preparation of all projects for Global customers, with Global's Project Services Managers reporting to him. Miller's promotion reinforces Global as a true Australia-wide provider of services to the content creation industry.
Global's Director of Television and Commercial, Soames Treffry, said: “People make television pictures and Global is committed to having the best on board to do so.
"Anyone who has worked with Andries knows how good he is and knows what his appointment means to Global and, especially, for our clients. If they haven’t had the pleasure of working with Andries in the past they are about to.
"Adam has proven himself with his wonderful mix of technical expertise and client-centric approach to everything he does. He will be an outstanding leader to our Project Services team."
