Timeline Television has appointed Paul Tovee as the head of Timeline North, its post facility at MediaCityUK.

Tovee was previously a freelance offline and online editor who also had a stint as lead editor for The Farm in Salford.

“Paul has a fantastic reputation, impeccable credentials and a superb breadth of experience,” said Timeline managing director Dan McDonnell.

“It’s an exciting time for Timeline North as we are renewing our lease at MediaCityUK after a successful first four years and have invested heavily in new people, equipment and connectivity. Paul will help us deliver even better services to our clients, from 2016 and beyond”.

Tovee starts full-time from the beginning of April.

Former Timeline North post production director Eben Clancy left the facility earlier this year to launch Phantom Sun Post Production.
