All3Media Promotes Jane Turton to CEO

All3Media has promoted Jane Turton to the CEO post, putting the last piece in place following the U.K. production company’s acquisition by Discovery Communications and Liberty Global.

All3Media encompasses 20 separate entities, mostly focused on unscripted production, including Gordon Ramsay’s One Potato Two Potato and “Undercover Boss” producer Studio Lambert.

Turton, All3Media’s chief operating officer, moves into the top job vacated in September by Farah Ramzan Golant following the Discovery-Liberty deal. Turton has been with the company since 2008.

James Rosenstock, Discovery Communications Executive Vice President of Corporate Development said “Jane Turton has done an outstanding job of leading All3Media with a winning combination of creative acumen and operational excellence,” said James Rosenstock, Discovery’s exec VP of corporate development. Niall Curran, president of Liberty Global Content Investments, added: “After a global search for a new CEO, Jane was the resounding and clear choice to lead All3Media’s business in 2015 and beyond.”

All3Media’s rollup is part of the recent wave of consolidation among unscripted production companies with a focus on building the size and scale needed to sell shows and formats around the world. Discovery and Liberty have said that All3Media will continue to run as an autonomous entity.

“It’s a hugely exciting time to be leading an international production company,” Turton said. “With its wealth of incredible talent and breadth of award winning content All3Media is in prime position to take full advantage of the opportunities opening up in the ever changing content market.”
