Morwen Williams Appointed as New Chair of WBU-IMCG

The World Broadcasting Unions (WBU) International Media Connectivity Group (IMCG) has appointed Morwen Williams, Head of UK Operations for BBC News, the new committee Chair, effective July 1st.

“I’m hugely honoured to have been invited to do this and look forward to working to take the IMCG to even greater successes,” states Williams. “The challenges and opportunities around connectivity for broadcasters have never been more so than at present and it will be inspiring to work with so many great colleagues on these issues.”

Williams is replacing John Ball, Vice-President of Global Distribution and Technology, WarnerMedia, who has served as WBU-IMCG Chair since 2016 and will be leaving the company at the end of July. The remaining term for IMCG Chair is until the end of 2020.

“We are all thrilled to see Morwen in this leadership position. She has been a vital member of the WBU-IMCG since 2015 and has contributed deeply to our IMCG Forums, most recently taking on the hosting responsibilities of our upcoming Forum in November,” said Michael McEwen, Head of the WBU Secretariat. “I very much look forward to her leadership.”

The WBU-IMCG works with broadcasters, satellite and fibre service providers and vendors in providing global solutions to common exchange of content and operational problems on any platform.

The WBU-IMCG organises forums that are held twice a year that allow open dialogue from an international perspective on key collection and delivery issues.
