"Andrew has a wealth of TV and content creation experience in the UK independent market including a wealth of experience in TV M&A in this country and the USA. His knowledge of the market and its future direction will be invaluable to the board. We are grateful to all David Galan has contributed to the board in his various roles in the Company."

 

David Galan joined Zinc Media in January 2016, initially as CFO before moving to COO and then CEO in February 2018, and led a period of change and restructure of the business. The Board thanks David for his contribution to the Group and wishes him all the best for the future.
