Euro Media Group (EMG) has taken on Bevan Gibson as chief technology officer to replace outgoing CTO Ronald Meyvisch.
Gibson will join the company, which describes itself as Europe’s leading provider of broadcast facilities and services, on 1 October.
He moves over from ITN, where he was CTO and managed a team of over 100 people. While at ITN, Gibson was responsible for the host broadcast technical operations at the World Athletics Championships in Doha.

This is paramount to our future success as we advance our technology capabilities; and enhance the ever wider set of technological services we make available to our clients.”
