ITV Studios, the production and distribution arm of the UK commercial broadcaster, has announced new roles for Tom Clark and Jemma Harvey within its senior global partnerships team.

Clark has been upped to exec VP of global sales and commercial strategy while Harvey is expanding her role to senior VP of scripted and coproductions.

Clark, who joined in October 2023 as exec VP of commercial strategy, reporting to MD Ruth Berry, will now oversee three regional sales exec VPs: Gisela Aismus Minnbergh for EMEA, Augustus Dulgaro for APAC, and the current vacancy formerly held by Greg Johnson for the Americas; as well as Jurian van der Meer, exec VP of brand licensing.

In his new capacity, Clark is responsible for optimising the ITV Studios sales efforts across all regions as well as the planning and execution of commercial strategy and insights.

Harvey, who was appointed senior VP of global content in July 2022, expands her responsibilities while continuing to report to exec VP of global content, Julie Meldal-Johnsen and working alongside Kate Barnes who continues to lead the scripted team as senior VP of scripted.

Harvey will be responsible for leading the coproduction strategy and sales globally, working closely with the Los Angeles and London sales teams. She will also lead the strategic global roll out of ITV Studios’ drama slate and collaborate on other strategic initiatives.

Berry said: “Tom has a huge amount of invaluable industry experience and is already driving the business further forward. Jemma is a brilliant and highly regarded executive with both producers and broadcasters around the world and is already out securing and nurturing co-productions.”

Clark joined ITV Studios from Airbnb where he held the position of director of experiences and commercial operations. Prior to that he was commercial director at PRS for Music and previous to that, held a number of roles at The Walt Disney Company over 12 years, rising to VP and head of digital media distribution for EMEA.

Harvey was formerly senior VP of sales and coproductions for scripted at BBC Studios based in New York. There she led the scripted sales team and brokered coproduction deals including I May Destroy You (HBO), His Dark Materials (HBO) and End of the F***ing World (Netflix). Prior to that, she worked for BBC Studios in London where she held a number of positions, most recently head of content and development for digital.
