General Manager, Radioplayer Worldwide
Lawrence Galkoff has been the General Manager of Radioplayer Worldwide since the beginning of the year. With a solid background in technology which began in the BBC Radio Central Control Room in the mid-eighties, he brings with him over thirty years of experience across all sectors of the broadcast industry. In the intervening years, Lawrence has managed the technical planning for many key radio and TV programmes and so has always worked hard to be at the forefront of new technology. Having closely followed the transformation from analogue to digital and as an early adopter of IP for programme delivery, Lawrence is fully aware of the opportunities that the digital world brings to broadcasters and is determined that broadcasters make the most of these opportunities to enhance the services they already provide to their audiences and to make sure that they stay one step ahead of the new forms of entertainment that are competing for that audience. As an avid radio consumer, Lawrence wants to make sure that radio stays the first choice for the majority and that access remains simple and obvious on all platforms.
