Director, Content Creation and Production
Julie Adair started working in broadcasting with BBC Scotland in 1985. Over the next 10 years, working in the BBC and commercial television, she researched, directed and produced a range of television content, from American football to 3-D animation, from award-winning children’s shows to documentaries. After stints in Atlanta, New York and Glasgow, Julie moved to London in 1997 for a few years to work with programme-makers in developing their online skills and awareness. Her time in London culminated in a promotion to Managing Editor, BBC Nations and Regions where her remit was to grow teams, sites and talent across the UK.
Julie returned to Glasgow full-time as Head of BBC Scotland Interactive in 2000, managing a team of over 45, producing award-winning websites and, increasingly, building interactive TV, blogs, games and mobile platforms.
In early 2008, Julie moved back to London as Director of Online for the Walt Disney Company, managing teams and output across Europe, Middle East and Africa. Her primary focus is games, original content and twenty-three Disney websites across the Region.
