WRN appoints former Arqiva MD as non-exec director

Broadcast services provider WRN Broadcast has appointed Nick Thompson, the former managing director of Arqiva’s Broadcast and Media division, as non-executive director. 

Thompson, who was at Arqiva until 2011, will work with WRN Broadcast’s board and executive management team to help inform the company’s strategic development plan and progress the company’s growth, WRN said.

“With our recent investment into key emerging areas and with several significant customer wins Nick joins us at a very exciting time for the company. We welcome the wealth of experience Nick brings and we are excited to have his guidance and support,” said WRN Broadcast chairman Tim Ashburner.

WRN Broadcast provides multi-channel playout, content management and distribution services for firms including Viacom, Top Up TV and Zuku.

Prior to Arqiva, Thompson worked as president of EMEA at Loral CyberStar, as managing director of the satellite division at Kingston Communications and as CEO of Inmedia Communications.
