Kudos shakes up management

Stephen Garrett, Jane Featherstone take new roles

LONDON — The U.K.’s Kudos Film and Television, owned by Elisabeth Murdoch’s Shine Group, is restructuring its senior management team.

Founder and exec chairman Stephen Garrett and creative director Jane Featherstone become chairman and CEO respectively.

Joint managing director Dan Isaacs is upped to chief operating officer, working with Featherstone. Kudos’ other joint managing director, Simon Crawford Collins, is quitting to set up his own shingle.

Among his duties, Garrett will develop Shine’s digital strategy as well as create global scripted brands across Shine.

Shine topper Elisabeth Murdoch said, “This restructure ensures Kudos’ creative and commercial renewal and retains its peerless DNA.

“It is an evolution that prepares the company for its next exciting chapter, allows Stephen to work across a broader canvas, Jane and Dan to lead the company to what I’m sure will be yet more critical and commercial success and for Simon to pursue his dream, which, on behalf of the group, I’d like to wish him the best of luck with.”
