Kudos has appointed Karen Wilson to the newly created role of chief creative officer.
Wilson joined Kudos in 2001 and as an executive producer has worked on high-profile series such as Hustle (BBC One), Spooks (BBC One), Utopia (Channel 4) and The Tunnel (Sky Atlantic). In her new post, working closely with CEO Diederick Santer and COO Martin Haines, Wilson will oversee the creative direction of the company.
Santer said: “Celebrating a quarter-century of leading the way in drama, Kudos is once again evolving and reforming by bringing our smartest, hardest-working, and longest-serving creative into the leadership of the company. Karen is a brilliant and confident colleague, epitomizes all the values we aspire to at Kudos, and I’m thrilled to be working with her even more closely across all our output, including three as yet unannounced commissions.”
Wilson said: “I am passionate about Kudos; its people, its output and its ambition. So to have the opportunity to work with Diederick and Martin in shaping its future is hugely exciting. Working with both new and existing partners and collaborators I’m looking forward to delivering outstanding work for both domestic and international audiences.”
