4 March 2024With the appointment of Jonatan de Boer (37) as interim Director Broadcast Services, NEP The Netherlands is strengthening its leadership team.

As part of the strategic reorientation, which NEP has been going through over the past period, the Multicam and ENG business units have been integrated into one Broadcast Services team as of 1 March.

Under his leadership, NEP can continue to grow as a sustainable employer in a rapidly changing market. It offers our colleagues more career opportunities and variety in their work. Since the beginning of this year, several camera operators have already been successfully trained in the ENG profession and ENG camera operators in the Multicam profession. We have also started integrating the back office. With the new Broadcast Services unit, our clients will have even easier access to NEP’s best people.”

Jonatan de Boer (interim Director Broadcast Services): “I am very much looking forward to working at NEP, a company where passion, professionalism and fun are key. My executive experience in the media industry and passion for content will help me lead the strategic integration of the ENG and Multicam teams, bringing them together into one integrated Broadcast Services unit. This initiative is an important step in further professionalizing NEP and optimizing our services. The warm welcome and interactions I have had with my new colleagues so far confirm my belief that we are in for a great period together.”
