MEDIAPRO Hires for London Hub


LONDON: Stephen Johnstone has been appointed as managing director of MEDIAPRO Content UK, tasked with launching the Spanish TV and film group’s production business in London.

Johnstone spent the last four years as director of EMEA (excluding the U.K.) for GroupM Entertainment, where he was responsible for the expansion of the Grou M Entertainment business into ten new territories throughout Europe. He has previously worked at Channel 4 and spent ten years at Turner Broadcasting, where he was European senior VP of youth channels.

Johnstone said, “This is a really competitive market, but we think we still have a lot to offer. Our goal is to work with broadcasters and producers to help bring brilliant ideas and stories to life. MEDIAPRO is an exceptional company with enviable production experience and talent. Production budgets, particularly in scripted, are rising rapidly everywhere and we need to make quality shows more accessible.”
