Wise will be responsible for worldwide sales and providing strategic insight into content development and acquisition.

Wise joins Rainmaker having previously been part of Sky’s international distribution arm, Sky Vision, since 2012. From 2018, she managed its EMEA sales team, selling across all genres and broadcast platforms.

Rainmaker Content has also appointed another former Sky Vision exec, hiring Singapore-based Caroline Clarke as sales consultant for Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Reporting to Wise, Clarke will lead the company’s sales strategies in the regions. Clarke was most recently senior sales manager for Sky Vision, handling international sales to Asia across all genres.

The third new appointment is Colin Kiely, who has been named director of operations and digital distribution.

Previously director of digital operations at Kew Media, Kiely will work closely with Rainmaker chief operating officer and co-founder Vicky Ryan, with additional responsibility for expanding the company’s digital presence around the world.

Rainmaker co-founder Greg Phillips said: “We are delighted Karen is joining us at this exciting time as we continue to build our business and expand our portfolio of high-end programming. We have hired an experienced sales head to take the helm. Karen has a great deal of expertise across multiple genres, coupled with exceptional relationships with many clients around the world including North America.

“In addition, we are pleased to welcome Caroline in Singapore to develop and extend our presence in Asia, including Japan, the Middle East and Africa.”
