TAC is pleased to announce that Dyfrig Davies, Managing Director of production company Telesgop, will become the new Chair when Gareth Williams, Chief Executive of Rondo Media, steps down from the role in October after three and a half years.

Dyfrig Davies is a long-standing member of TAC Council and is also Chair of Urdd Gobaith Cymru as well as being an award-winning director, producer and executive producer of live events and documentary programmes, and won a Bafta Cymru Award for Single Documentary in 2020 for ‘The Prince and the Bomber’. He is the executive producer on Telesgop’s coverage of the Royal Welsh Show and on popular and successful weekly S4C farming series ‘Ffermio’.

Gareth Williams, TAC Chair, said: “I am delighted that Dyfrig will succeed me as TAC Chair in the autumn. On behalf of TAC Council, I would like to welcome him to the role, which I know he will fulfil in his customary assured, balanced and constructive style. Dyfrig will join the new executive team at TAC, and I look forward to seeing the future developments in store for our members.ʺ

Dyfrig Davies said: “I would like to thank Gareth Williams for his commitment to the Chair’s role since 2018. As TAC Council, we greatly appreciate his noteworthy contribution to our work, which has raised our profile considerably, especially since the pandemic began. I am looking forward very much to becoming Chair in the autumn, and continuing to build on TAC’s strong relationship with S4C and other broadcasters, policy-makers and regulatory bodies, for the benefit of the production sector in Wales who form our membership.ʺ

TAC Council voted at a recent meeting to change the term of the Chairship to one year from the previous three, and to create the role of Deputy Chair, who will then become Chair at the end of a year’s term. The first Deputy Chair will be elected at the TAC Council meeting in September.
