Thinkbox CEO Lindsey Clay has been appointed the first president of The Global TV Group, an informal grouping of TV broadcasters, sales houses, and trade bodies in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and Latin America.
The initiative was first established in 2013 and is a forum for sharing knowledge, exchanging best practice and collating global TV intelligence. To date it consists of 14 TV industry associations from across the globe.
Speaking about her appointment, Clay said: “I’m honoured to be The Global TV Group’s first president. The TV industry, so used to being nationally-focussed, needs to work together more internationally to tell the incredible story of its cultural and business-transforming power, and its rapidly accelerating technological capabilities. Viewers and advertisers have never had it so good. A great story is there to be told.”
