News Image
Europe's leading broadcast service provider EMG Group has appointed Peter Bates as UK CEO and Group Strategy Director.

In this newly created role, Peter will be central to developing EMG Group's strategy and guiding the Global Leadership Team through the transformation the business is undergoing. His new role will also comprise leading on Group and country strategies, new market entry and acquisitions, and also seeking out opportunities for business growth. Peter will be working closely with EMG Group CEO Shaun Gregory and the leadership team on EMG Group's three-year transformation plan.

Peter joined Telegenic in 1985 as a runner, one of only seven staff at that time. He was subsequently promoted to OB Editor, before being appointed CEO of Telegenic in 2004, having joined forces with Terry James to complete a management buyout. Peter and Terry steered Telegenic's progression, establishing it as a market leader and an innovator over two decades of change. During that period, the business grew from £7 million of annualised turnover to over £30 million, leveraging the move to HD, 3D and later UHD.

Telegenic joined the EMG Group in 2019. The business is now entering a period of transformation to create a truly global company. Emerging from a challenging couple of years, EMG Group is perfectly positioned to capture growth opportunities, through a clear strategy, robust plan, and the best people in the industry.

Peter Bates, UK CEO, Group Strategy Director, EMG Group said: "The market is changing rapidly and I’m excited at the growth opportunities that will no doubt present themselves. EMG has a comprehensive and diverse range of services, backed up by world class talent, so is uniquely positioned to grow. Leading on those strategies, and working with the Global Leadership Team, is giving me a fresh challenge that I am really looking forward to. It's also yet another change where we’re integrating the countries with group wide responsibilities, which helps us operate more effectively and efficiently."
