Former BBC man to chair WRN
Tim Ashburner has been promoted to the role of Chairman at international broadcast services firm WRN Broadcast.
A former Senior Audio Supervisor at the BBC, Tim helped found WRN and has previously been in charge of their technical strategy.
Back in 1999 he won the prestigious IBC Engineer of the Year Award for services to radio innovation, specifically for work carried out on DAB and DVB systems.
Tim told RadioToday.co.uk: "In the past two years WRN Broadcast has gone thorough some radical growth. Our excellent team of people are envied by our competitors for providing solutions that are cost effective and innovative whilst realising the clients goals and I’m proud I helped make this happen. My appointment as Chairman will be a challenging and rewarding role allowing me to continue to contribute to a company that I have endeavoured to nurture and develop over the past two decades."
David Treadway, Managing Director, WRN Broadcast, says: "Having Tim at the helm of WRN Broadcast will be a hugely advantageous move for us as we continue to grow our global footprint. Not only does Tim know exactly what the company does, but he knows precisely how we do it – his first-class broadcast experience will be an absolute asset as we continue to offer our clients the very best end-to-end solutions."
