Tim Bertioli is joining UKTV to oversee the broadcaster’s technology and operations teams and lead a team of circa 50 staff.
He will report into Nicola Greaves, BBC Studios’ executive vice president global operations, and has been tasked with delivering the strategy for UKTV channel operations whilst working within the global context of BBC Studios.
His responsibilities will also include the continuous development of a cloud-first media supply chain strategy and production workflows.
Bertioli joins UKTV in January from VICE Media Group, where he oversaw global media operations and technology functions.
Prior to this, he spent over a decade with international broadcasters, including MTV/Viacom and NBCUniversal, leading engineering, infrastructure, and development teams through significant technology and systems change.
Nicola Greaves said, “I am thrilled to be welcoming Tim to the UKTV and BBC Studios teams as director of media services. The UKTV technology and operations teams have a strong culture of innovation and continuous improvement and I am eager to see how Tim applies his fantastic experience to the role.”
Bertioli added: “I’m really excited to be joining UKTV, as the company grows further. I look forward to supporting UKTV’s outstanding media services teams as they continue to develop their cloud-first media supply chain strategy, and to help ensure that viewers get to enjoy even more great content.”
