Simon Hall Departs CHF, Executives Promoted
Simon Hall has stepped down from the management of CHF Media Group Limited (“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 a previously announced move, CHF Entertainment, the production arm of the Group, has formed an executive management committee to coordinate the Creative, Commercial and Production teams of its businesses. The members of the executive committee have long been with CHF and include Chris Fenna, recently promoted to Creative Director, Helen Brown, now Director of Production, and Jenny Johnstone, Commercial Director. Together, these executives will manage the company’s collection of programming in production and new shows in development at CHF.
Chris Fenna stated: “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 Brown 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.”
John Levitt, Chairman of CHF Media Group, said: “CHF understands Simon’s need to expand his creative entrepreneurship and we have benefitted from his involvement during our formative years. We wish him well in his new endeavours and thank him for his dedication and hard work.”
CEO Adrian Wilkins added: “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”.
