Dan's the man

Dan McGolpin is the new Controller of Daytime for BBC TV, in succession to Damian Kavanagh.

Dan first joined the BBC in strategy. He later emerged as schedule manager for BBC2, and moved to Head of Scheduling and Planning for BBC3 in 2006, under then Controller Danny Cohen. Danny snaffled him again when he moved to BBC1 in 2010.

We spotted him on a trip to the LA Screenings in June 2011.  Emails published as appendices to the Pollard Report show him trying to sort out Savile tribute programmes in October 2011.

I can't find much more digital spore; he's in his 40th year and lives in Northfields, West London. He supports Spurs, though oddly follows Theo Walcott on Twitter. He went to Selwyn College, Cambridge, where he met his partner Alison. I rather hope he has no interest whatsover in antiques or getting rich doing up houses.
