Trio of new hires for The Collectv
Broadcast solutions and workflows consultancy The Collectv has made three additions to its UK team. Perrie Codling and Tom Evans join as media systems engineer and junior media systems engineer, respectively, while Patrick Nealon joins as technical runner.
The three new hires come at a time that sees The Collectv expanding its business. “The increase in demand for managed services in the broadcast industry has led to a surge in interest for the kind of broadcast solutions and workflows that we provide,” said Chris Sarson, MD and co-owner of The Collectv. “It’s a great time to be growing, innovating and increasing our capacity with a bigger team that has the right expertise and capabilities. This enables us to continue to deliver our high standard of service.”
Codling brings over six years of technical industry experience to The Collectv, having previously been with Director’s Cut and then Timeline Television at BT Sport’s site, where he was frontline support for the Champions League and Premier League. He has a range of skills covering non-linear edit systems, archive solutions, live playout, file-based workflows and IP environments.
Evans has a broad knowledge in post production. Since working across a wide variety of edit environments including Clear Cut Pictures and live productions at Viacom, DAZN and BBC, he has gained valuable experience in operating and supporting Avid and EVS systems.
Nealon completed his studies in audio and music production at Buckinghamshire New University and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity, while still studying, to assist on outside broadcasts for Reading FC, Watford FC and the BBC, where he fulfilled various audio roles. He has worked as an audio-visual engineer and also has experience in a post-production environment, having completed work experience at Pinewood Studios and at Warner Bros. De Lane Lea.
“I have no doubt that Perrie, Tom and Patrick will add immeasurable value to The Collectv team. They embody the spirit and drive that every Collectv team member has to deliver the best solution to our clients,” added Sarson.
