Presteigne Broadcast North expands hire desk with Skinner hire
Presteigne Broadcast Hire has announced the appointment of Jane Skinner as senior hire desk co-ordinator. Reporting to Presteigne North hire manager Roy Gaterell, Skinner is based at the company’s northern office in Warrington, equidistant between Manchester and Liverpool.
Skinner started her career at Granada (now ITV) in Manchester as a coordinator for Granada Reports and This Morning. She then progressed to drama with Mersey TV/Lime Pictures, working as a technical coordinator on programmes such as Hollyoaks and Brookside. Due to her expertise, Skinner was soon seconded to the production department where she undertook resource and production coordination roles.
Skinner comes to Presteigne from a Liverpool-based dry hire office, where she had converted her experience as a dry hire customer to apply it as a supplier. Skinner said, “I am delighted to join Presteigne, which has a well-established reputation for excellence. I am already enjoying using that reputation to establish relationships with new clients and reinforce those with existing ones, both of which include an extensive number of contacts from my previous roles in production.”
