He will take over from outgoing CEO Roger Henderson and will have global oversight of TSL’s life cycle services, consultancy, systems design, integration and fibre and structured cabling services. Henderson will remain with the company in the role of Executive Director until the end of the year.
Rees has thirty years’ experience in the television industry, starting his career in the Network Engineering department of the BBC, working at Television Centre and the New York bureau.

He has an engineering degree from the University of Cambridge and is a Chartered Engineer.
Commenting on his appointment Rees said: “TSL has a long-earned, well-deserved reputation around the globe for integrity, quality and customer focus. I am delighted to be joining the company and working with the team in continuing to provide outstanding solutions to existing and new customers. The broadcast industry never stands still and I am very much looking forward to helping TSL’s business portfolio to adapt and grow to meet the challenges of the future.”
Rees’ appointment is designed to strengthen TSL Systems’ board of directors and to build on a period of strong growth for the company which has seen a significant increase in the number of high profile project wins over the last 18 months.
“It has been a fantastic couple of years at TSL Systems and I am very proud of the way we have seen the business transform and strengthen in such a short time. As we continue to increase our service offering, our support and operational structures must also scale to maintain and sustain the high levels of service that our customers have come to see as a hallmark of TSL Systems,” said Roger Henderson, CEO, TSL Systems.
“Jeremy’s experience will be invaluable in spring boarding the company to the next level in its growth and development.”
TSL Holdings Chairman, David MacGregor added: “Roger has nurtured TSL Systems over the last few years and done a great job in transitioning our business through some challenges and he deserves an immense amount of credit for helping us rebuild and refocus our offering. Under his stewardship we have seen dramatic growth in our Projects, Services – and the recently added Fibre – divisions. I am confident that Jeremy will take up the baton and see us continue this success.”
