A long-serving Shine Group executive is leaving the News Corp-owned producer to join Industry Media, a James Grant Group business affairs company.
John Gilbert has been with Shine since its start-up phase in 2001 in a number of roles. He was most recently brand-focused division Shine 360’s commercial and business affairs director and is credited with exploiting brands such as MasterChef and The Biggest Loser.
A Shine spokesman said the company was currently looking for a replacement.
Gilbert will join Industry in May, as part of series of hires the UK company is making to push further into scripted, non-scripted and children’s TV.
Industry is part of the James Grant stable, a UK-based talent and media management company that last year acquired Gallowgate, which is the production company owned by UK presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly (Ant and Dec).
