A fanatical Burnley football fan, Chris’ transfer into the world of film and television took place in 2006 where he joined as a member of the LSH BBC team. There he got to grips with managing a corporate media property portfolio, supported disposal programmes for the retail portfolio & audio books and took his first soiree into studios with Top Gear.
Some years later and Chris is Head of LSH Media, Account Director for ITV and Strategic Adviser to Barking and Dagenham Council and their vision for a new Film Studio in the borough. In the process he has become the leading property advisor to the TV and Film Industry in UK & Ireland and has an enviable contact list ranging from UK and International TV & Film producers, studio operators and public bodies associated with the industry.
His ultimate goal is to bring together sufficient land, funding & specialist knowledge to satisfy the undersupply of space throughout the industry.
With a background in corporate property, Mark is now fully immersed in the world of film and television. Seconded to ITV as their in-house Group Surveyor, he provides strategic advice on their 1.2m sq ft portfolio.

As a consequence, Mark has developed an encyclopedic knowledge of the various studios and filming spaces around the UK, advising multiple occupiers, developers and studio investment funds as a result.
Enthusiastic and raring to go, Mark has a passion for the outdoors, having hiked to Mt Everest base camp, trekked Machu Pichu in Peru and can often be found cycling down winding country lanes at weekends.

Fanatical about film – that’s Fi, where she has spent the last five years of her career supporting the BBC.
