Matthew Postgate, controller of BBC research and Development has been appointed to the role of chief technology officer for the BBC.
Postgate joined the BBC in 2003 and has worked across emerging platforms, mobile services and led the first public test of BBC iPlayer.
Matthew Postgate said “It’s been a huge honour for me to lead a number of teams within BBC Future Media. They are the best in the business and leaders in their field – just look at the BBC’s World Cup UHD trials – but opportunities like this are rare and I didn’t want it to pass me by."
Postgate replaces interim CTO Peter Coles, who filled the role left by John Linwood.
Postgate spoke at the DTG Summit about UK Innovation in Television in May of this year.
