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.
Fanatical about film – that’s Fi, where she has spent the last five years of her career supporting the BBC. Recently, this South West girl took to the East End to negotiate a great deal agreeing terms with the local authority so the BBC construction team were able to access and rebuild the EastEnders set to cater for high definition requirements.
Fiona is a member of Nigel’s team and focuses on ensuring the estate is fit for the digital age in which we live.
We all know the BBC as “Auntie” but now meet “Uncle” Nigel. There’s nothing Nigel doesn’t know about the BBC portfolio, having advised for over 10 years and generated savings of £90m and capital receipts of £380m (wow!). Nigel supported the relocation of BBC Children in Need and Sport Relief to Salford, Manchester; managed BBC exits from the Television Centre and Media Village and was the principal advisor for the ongoing relocation in Cardiff City Centre.
Nigel knows media, and is an expert in all aspects of media asset management, portfolio transformation and business-as-usual operations.
