“I head our Content Distribution and Transmission team and focus on the creation, acquisition, licensing and distribution of content via television, online, mobile and other digital platforms.

The beauty of this sector is that it’s always changing: every day sees a new challenge as the digital world accelerates. Often, it’s not about today’s problems but tomorrow’s – identifying and solving these issues is a great job to have”.
