NBCUniversal has named Ian Trombley president of operations and technical services, the media conglomerate announced Monday.
Trombley fills a void left by John Wallace, who recently left NBCU after 27 years to become president and CEO of Deluxe.
In his new position, Trombley will take charge of NBCU’s real estate portfolio, as well as owned studio and post-production operations for film and TV, including the network operating centers in Denver, New York and New Jersey.
Trombley has spent 15 years at NBCU, most recently as exec VP of television operations. In that post he managed day-to-day operations and engineering for 30 Rock studios and facilities, among other tasks.
“(John’s) impact is felt all over the organization from technology to real estate to culture,” said NBCUniversal exec VP Adam Miller. “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.”
In addition to the restoration project, Trombley was instrumental in leading the NBC network’s transition from analog to digital television. He joined NBCU from GE, where he worked in the quality and IT divisions.
