CEO

Turner Laing boarded the newly merged company Endemol Shine Group in late 2014 and helped integrate it quickly even as leading executives departed and some commentators predicted failure. Now it encompasses a network of 120 production companies in more than 20 territories. Turner Laing likens it to a “flotilla of different-size ships going in the same direction but quite independent.” As admiral of the fleet, she presides over a powerhouse that, in 2017, ran more than 800 productions airing across 287 channels, including Netflix’s “Black Mirror,” the Showtime drama “I’m Dying Up Here” and Channel 4 and AMC’s “Humans,” as well as unscripted shows “Big Brother” and “Masterchef.” In July, she received the International Academy’s 2018 Directorate Emmy.
