Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger, co-founders of Australian indie Every Cloud Productions, are stepping back from day-to-day operations at the company, setting a new management structure that sees senior staff Drew Grove, Mike Jones and Shraddha Gatiya elevated to partners.
Cox and Eagger will continue in advisory roles at the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries producer, while head of business affairs Grove has been appointed as CEO, with Jones as head of content and Gatiya as finance director.
The company will continue to operate from its headquarters in Stephen Street, Yarraville, and Eagger commented that she and Cox are “thrilled to be handing over the reins to our trusted team who have been such an important part of the company’s success.”
She continued: “Succession planning is important and we are excited to infuse our beloved company with new energy and vitality as we devolve our responsibilities to an advisory capacity, whilst retaining rights and roles in our key properties.”
Cox added: “As a company we’ve always sought to increase female representation on screen as well as behind the camera and to create screen career opportunities in regional communities. We think it’s equally important to support new talent to step into leadership roles and to provide mentoring and business opportunities to the next generation of screen creatives. It’s exciting to know that Every Cloud will continue in the very capable hands of Drew, Mike and Shraddha.
New CEO Grove said that the company is poised to take advantage of “expanding market opportunities,” while continuing to further exploit the company’s existing brands, which include Miss Fisher spin-off, Ms Fisher, and East Of Everything.
