Acamar Films welcomes new director of communications

Acamar Films has appointed Kate Dickson as director of communications.

In her new role, Kate (pictured) will be responsible for Acamar’s overall communications strategy, and for audience communications on Bing as the property continues its global expansion; launching into new markets and expanding across a variety of platforms.

From 2012 until 2018, Kate served as director of communications at Nickelodeon UK and Ireland where she was responsible for all communications for Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Nick Jr. and their properties as well as Channel 5’s Milkshake. Prior to her time at Nickelodeon, Kate held communications positions at Canada’s Family Channel and Teletoon.

“We’re all genuinely excited about Kate joining our team. She brings a wealth of communications expertise to Acamar Films but more than that she has a real appreciation of Bing, his world and the impact of the series on viewers,” commented Mikael Shields, ceo at Acamar Films. “Kate will play a leadership role in Acamar’s communications strategy, introducing Bing to audiences as we forge new partnerships, launch across platforms and bring the series to new international territories.”

Kate continued: “Children’s entertainment has always held my heart and I am honoured to be given the opportunity to work on Bing, a series that has meant so much to my own family.

“I have seen first hand the way that Bing provides a framework for young children to understand their world and it is brilliant to be part of the Acamar team as Bing continues to grow and find new fans.”
