Wayne Garvie Appointed Head of International Production at SPT


Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) has named Wayne Garvie president of international production for Sony Pictures Television (SPT).

Garvie has been supervising SPT’s international productions on an interim basis for the past several months. He will now lead the studio’s international TV production business, managing the creative teams outside the U.S. as well as SPT’s 20 owned and JV international production companies around the globe. Based in London, he will continue working under Tony Vinciquerra, the chairman and CEO of SPE.

Previously, Garvie was chief creative officer for international production at SPT. He first joined the company in 2012 from all3media, where he served as managing director of international production. Prior to that, he was managing director for content and production at BBC Worldwide.

“Wayne has been a strong leader, galvanizing our international production team with his energy, enthusiasm and creativity without missing a beat,” said Vinciquerra. “I want to thank Wayne for his hard work over the last few months of transition at SPT. We look forward to growing this important line of business for SPE with Wayne officially at the helm.”

Garvie added: “I’m thrilled to work with some of the world’s greatest storytellers in Sony’s international group. I want to thank Tony for this opportunity to lead them and continue to make great content that entertains audiences around the world.”
