Jane Millichip has been named chief operating officer at RDF Rights, part of the RDF Media Group. She’ll report to RDFR managing director Matthew Frank.
She joins RDFR from New Zealand production company South Pacific Pictures, where she had been managing director since September 2005, as well as executive producing the company’s entertainment and factual output, including “NZ Idol.”
Before working for South Pacific, Millichip was director of acquisitions at RDF Rights.
Hire is a move to bolster the management team in line with RDFR’s growth as it expands into the distribution of drama, children’s and comedy programming in addition to its factual catalog.
She’ll join RDFR in June.
