Bloomberg Media announced Tuesday that Dafydd Rees has been named executive producer for Bloomberg Television in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

He will begin in January and be based in London.

Rees will lead the Bloomberg Television team across the region and will be responsible for overseeing the channel’s news coverage, programming and development and operations.

Rees joins Bloomberg Media from Sky News where he spent nearly 10 years spearheading its business and news programming. Prior to joining Sky News, he was a senior journalist at the BBC for more than 15 years.

Rees is the most recent addition in a series of high-profile hires within Bloomberg’s media operation in EMEA this year. Former Guardian executive Adam Freeman joined as the first managing director of Bloomberg Media for Europe, the Middle East and Africa in May and has since appointed Matt Teeman of DMG Media and BBC Worldwide as commercial director and Ben Clissitt of the Telegraph Media Group as director of digital content.

“Bloomberg’s reputation as a world class source of financial and business information has no equal,” said Rese in a statement. “This is a unique opportunity to create intelligent and informed television which makes sense of how money is changing the world.”
