Key changes afoot at CHF Media Group

CHF Entertainment forms new executive management committee.

A number of changes have taken place at CHF Media Group.

Simon Hall has stepped down from the management of the group to pursue new opportunities. Although he will still maintain an interest in the group, he will no longer be involved in its day to day management.

In addition, CHF Entertainment – the production arm of the group – has formed a new executive management committee. The aim is to coordinate the creative, commercial and production teams of the businesses.

Jenny Johnstone (pictured above, left) has been promoted to commercial director; Chris Fenna (centre) is now creative director; and Helen Brown (right) is director of production.

Together, the trio will manage the company’s collection of programming in production and new shows in development at CHF.

Chris commented: “I’m very proud to be part of the future of CHF. We will continue to invest in talent and creative ideas to keep CHF at the forefront of international animation.”

Helen added: “It’s an exciting time for CHF. We’ve built an incredibly strong production team on whom we place enormous value.

“They are key to our success and we’re looking forward to working with them to produce content of the highest standard, continuing to build a strong studio identity within the industry.”

Adrian Wilkins, ceo at the company, continued: “It has been a privilege to work with Simon and I trust his new ventures will be just as successful.

“I am very excited to be overseeing the new team at CHF Entertainment and helping them with the development of the next generation of shows in the CHF Media Fund.”
