Eleventh Hour Films Restructures Senior Team


LONDON: Drama specialist Eleventh Hour Films has restructured its senior management team, giving the company’s four directors more defined roles.

Eleventh Hour Films founder Jill Green becomes chief executive, having previously held the role of managing director. Green will be responsible for overseeing the strategic and creative direction of the business and implementing the company’s long-term growth plans to increase its global footprint.

Nicole Finnan, previously the commercial director, takes over the role of managing director, where she will nurture international relationships alongside managing the commercial and financial aspects of the company.

Paula Cuddy, formerly the company’s head of development, has been appointed as creative director. Cuddy will help to lead the company’s mission to expand its content and continue to develop Eleventh Hour Films’ relationships with writers and broadcasters.

Eve Gutierrez transitions from producer into the roles of head of talent and executive producer. She will be working to match-make projects with global talent, as well as overseeing productions.

Green said: “At Eleventh Hour Films we have an impressive senior management team with a real depth and breadth of experience, and who are perfectly placed to lead us into our next phase of expansion. We pride ourselves in thinking laterally—both creatively, by finding different ways into familiar genres—and strategically, by thinking around any challenge that may arise. Our portfolio represents a distinctive slate of high-end drama projects of which we are incredibly proud, and after our strongest financial year yet and with a fantastic team leading us, we are in a great position to continue our growth in 2017.”
