All3Media’s UK-based outfit Little Dot Studios has appointed former Sky and BBC exec Zara Gregory to the newly created role of director of operations.
Little Dot said Gregory would be responsible for designing and driving “an operational change agenda” to generate sustainable growth. She reports into COO Kevin Gibbons.
Gregory was most recently group head of transformation at Sky, where she worked across its content operations arm and the Sky News division.
Prior to that, she was at the BBC where she held roles across TV and production, including leading the transition of BBC Three from a linear to online proposition.
Her arrival follows a recent global push for the company, which creates video and audio content for more than 600 social channels globally, as well as running channel brands and Dan Snow’s History Hit podcast network and SVOD service.
It has hired a new senior management team in the US, acquired production outfit WING and launched new consumer brands division.
Gibbons said: “Little Dot is rapidly scaling up as a global business, following a period of accelerated expansion over the past 18 months. Zara’s calibre and experience at major media brands makes her the ideal person to transform our operations and deliver significant, sustainable growth across the company, while also meeting our ambitious environmental and inclusivity commitments.”
