NBCU names Ian Trombley as president, operations & tech services

MUMBAI: NBCUniversal has named Ian Trombley as president of operations and technical services (O&TS).

Trombley will be responsible for the company’s owned studio and post production operations servicing television and film, including the network operating centers in Denver, New York, and New Jersey.

He also will lead global security, business services and the facility management of NBCUniversal’s real estate portfolio. 

Trombley will report to NBCUniversal EVP Adam Miller.

Miller said, “Ian is a talented and proven executive who has been an integral part of the O&TS team for the last 15 years. His operations expertise and thorough understanding of the company leave him uniquely positioned to succeed in this important and complex role.”

Most recently, Trombley was EVP of television operations where he was responsible for the day-to-day operations and engineering for 30 Rock studios, facilities and the on-air and non-linear origination for the company’s portfolio of networks. 

Trombley led the rebuild of legendary 30 Rock studios 6A, 6B and 8G, the design and construction of the new state-of-the art Studio Production Gallery and control rooms, and the renovation of over one million square feet of NBCUniversal’s 30 Rockefeller headquarters and New York metro properties.

Trombley succeeds John Wallace, a 27- year veteran of NBCUniversal, who joined NBC in 1988 as a member of the famed Page Program and rose through the ranks, holding a variety of leadership positions throughout the company during his tenure. Most recently, Wallace was president of O&TS since 2011 and prior to that president of the NBC Owned Stations from 2007-2011.

“John’s contributions to NBC over the course of his career are truly immeasurable. His impact is felt all over the organization from technology to real estate to culture. In just the past year, he successfully led the extensive 30 Rockefeller Plaza restoration project which will have a lasting impact on visitors to NBCUniversal and all our employees. Most importantly, however, John has been a valued mentor, colleague and friend to so many of us here. We thank him for his outstanding work and commitment to the success of this company,” said Mr. Miller.

Trombley will work alongside Wallace for the next five weeks to ensure a smooth transition before assuming the role on 8 September.

During his 15 years with NBCUniversal, Trombley has held a number of leadership positions in broadcast and technical operations, facilities and studios management, and Information Technology. He played a critical role leading the NBC network’s transition from analog to digital television (DTV) and has built and launched multi-channel, multi-platform distribution operations in both New Jersey and Colorado, supporting the company’s cable channels, global networks, and TV Everywhere.  

Trombley joined NBCUniversal from GE where he had previously held positions within the Quality and Information Technology divisions.
