Broadcast services provider Timeline Television has appointed David Harnett as its new Head of Operations.


He will be based at Timeline’s head office at Ealing Studios in West London and takes over from Nick Buckley, who will retire at the end of 2019.


David is already an established member of the Timeline team, having joined in 2015 as an OB Sound Guarantee. He has played a pivotal role in growing and developing the existing sound team, as well as helping Timeline to win a number of high-profile projects including Formula E and the FIFA World Cup.


In his newly promoted role as Head of Operations, he will work closely with the Chief Executive on future major projects. He will also be implementing new processes and procedures, as well as directly supporting Timeline’s commercial operations. He will act as a key contact for Timeline’s long-term clients, as well as managing several major projects.


Dan McDonnell, CEO at Timeline Television said: ‘I’d like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks to Nick Buckley for his hard work over the last 7 years. During Nick’s tenure as Head of Operations, the company has experienced huge growth. We employ over 150 staff and have delivered high profile projects including Formula E, SailGP, and BBC Blue Planet Live, amongst many others. I very much look forward to working with David as we continue to grow the business. “


Harnett said: “I’m really excited to take up this new opportunity as part of the Timeline senior team. I’m very much looking forward to working to further develop relationships with existing and new clients and support the wider Timeline teams with our strategy for future growth and development”.
