Mark Browning, CEO of Zinc Media Group, said: “Commissioners are now seeing the benefits of our move to a unified creative team, delivering a full range of factual genres, organised under four distinct labels, operating collaboratively from our new London HQ .

“Now is the time to have a single leader of this team to oversee the growth in high-quality programmes to all our customers. We are seeing a huge amount of interest from the US in our ideas, and our UK relationships continue to grow.

“Greg has contributed a huge amount to our transformation plan. He is an experienced and talented programme-maker, a great leader and a source of fantastic creative ideas. He’s an asset to our senior team and is the ideal person to help lead our London-based labels through the next phase of growth.”
