London – October 18, 2018 – Tyrell, the leading broadcast and professional video and audio solutions provider in the United Kingdom and Ireland, today announced the appointment of Lynn Keegan to Chief Operating Officer.

Our Technical Support Team has a combined experience of over 200 years, and we also like to talk so don’t be surprised if we call just to see how you are – you never know when this might unearth that nugget of information that you have been looking for.
Evaluating the team I found that the foundations were firmly laid down in the world of facilities. We all know what it is to work to tight deadlines and delivery schedules, we all know how to juggle limited editing suites and moreover we all know what it takes to deliver support in what seems like an unachievable situation.When I sought to add to the team I wanted to keep this ethos, therefore it made sense to go looking within facilities rather than to train up someone who didn’t know the industry.
Michael Martin is a Technical Support Engineer who joined Tyrell from BBC Northern Ireland one year ago, we asked him some questions about his background, interests, etc.
How Did You Become Interested in Technology?
I have been interested in technology for as long as I can remember, one of my childhood hobbies was opening up old electronics to see what was inside. Back in 1995 I can remember my parents getting a PC – I used to spend hours discovering how Windows 95 actually worked.

Meeting our customers and suppliers is always priority for us and we cherish any opportunity to meet people face-to-face.
We asked Adam Lewiston, our Pre-Sales Support Manager to describe how customers are welcomed to the Tyrell Support, and what they can expect from our service.
Usually, the end user would contact us directly – sometimes as a result of a recommendation or maybe a call from sales or support. If the contact comes from Sales Support, we would call the end user and arrange a site visit. This serves three purposes first it give us the chance to introduce ourselves, and second it give us the chance to have a look around the client’s location.
At the age of 16 I got my first job selling burgers and hot-dogs at Selhurst Park. That job taught me it is important to either enjoy what you do or the environment you work in, I enjoyed the environment as I got to sneak out to watch the match.
For me though this media business all started way back when I was in sixth form college. I wanted to study Media as I was fascinated by the prospect of working ‘in Media’.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE INDUSTRY?
Right through school, I’d always had a interest in Law and Business – so I decided to combine both with my college choice by completing a degree in Business and Law at Dublin Business School (DBS). I had envisaged undertaking further study to qualify as a solicitor but, as John Lennon said, life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.
The travel bug bit and I found myself picking up a one year residency visa for Canada, years – may I point out – before the world and his dog was doing so.
