A+E Networks UK has appointed Remi Abayomi as its senior director of broadcast operations.

A former Viacom and MTV exec, he will oversee the company’s expanding broadcast operations infrastructure across its channel portfolio in the United Kingdom, Central Europe, Benelux, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Greece and Africa, and report to managing director Tom Davidson.

A+E Networks UK is a joint venture between A+E Networks and BSkyB. Abayomi will work with operations groups at both companies on channels including History, Crime & Investigation and Lifetime, the latter of which will launch in the UK this fall.

“Remi brings a wealth of experience across broadcast operations and systems integration, particularly in the international channel space,” Davidson said.
