The Digital TV Group has named Dermot Nolan as its new director-general. The 25 year industry veteran has worked as a director of a variety of consultancy firms specialising in digital television and telecommunications.
DTG Chairman, Professor David Youlton said Nolan would bring a breadth of knowledge and a wealth of experience.
As the link between broadcasters and manufacturers in the UK digitisation process, the DTG is responsible for setting the specifications within the UK marketplace, many of which have emulated in continental Europe.
Most recently the organisation has been working on the technical side of the BBC-ITV venture Freesat to where Nolan’s predecessor Richard Lindsay Davies is heading as commercial development director.
