Gareth Williams announced as the new Chair of TAC

Gareth Williams, Chief Executive of Rondo Media, was today announced as the new Chair of Teledwyr Annibynnol Cymru, the trade association representing the TV production sector in Wales.

He replaces Iestyn Garlick, who stands down after leading TAC through the recent BBC Charter Review and the campaign to safeguard the future of S4C.

The TAC Annual General Meeting was held on 15 February in Aberystwyth, and TAC members heard presentations from new S4C Chief Executive Owen Evans and also from Rhodri Talfan Davies, Director of BBC Cymru Wales.

Iestyn Garlick said:

“It’s been a very busy time to have been Chair of TAC, but with the help of the TAC Council we have managed to achieve a great deal. Gareth has been a leading figure in all our work and I’m pleased to be able to step down knowing that TAC will be in such capable hands.”

Gareth Williams said:

“I’m very honoured to have been chosen to succeed Iestyn. Along with all involved with TAC, I’d like to place on record our thanks for the tremendous job he’s done in promoting the Welsh TV production sector. I look forward to working towards the conclusion of the Review of S4C and working with the UK and Welsh Governments to promote the Welsh TV sector and creative industries in general.”
