Cyrus Farrokh Joins Studio Ramsay Global


Studio Ramsay Global (SRG), the recently formed culinary and lifestyle production company created by Gordon Ramsay and FOX Entertainment, has made its first key executive hire: Cyrus Farrokh.

Farrokh has been tapped as senior VP of strategy. He will be working on SRG’s U.S. operations, business development and global growth strategy as the company expands its digital footprint across all content categories and distribution platforms worldwide.

Prior to joining SRG, Farrokh served five years as president of distribution at Propagate Content, and prior to this, was senior VP at Electus.

Based in Los Angeles, Cyrus will work closely with Ramsay, FOX Entertainment’s president of alternative entertainment and specials, Rob Wade, and SRG CCO Lisa Edwards.

“I’ve known and admired Cyrus for many years as he’s represented FAE’s intellectual property with great energy, creativity and aplomb,” said Wade. “He’s played an invaluable role in growing our presence around the world, and as we mark the first anniversary since SRG’s formation and start building out its leadership team, we’re excited to bring Cyrus in-house to focus his talent, experience and instincts on Gordon’s rapidly expanding content portfolio and growth plans.”

“We are delighted to welcome Cyrus to Studio Ramsay Global,” added Edwards. “Given his incredibly strong track record and excellent knowledge and understanding of the television landscape, he’s the perfect addition to our dynamic, prolific team. We very much look forward to working closely with him to help drive forward our vision and expand the business globally.”

“I am thrilled to join the fantastic Studio Ramsay Global team as they continue to innovate and represent excellence in food, lifestyle and so much more,” said Farrokh. “I want to thank Gordon, Lisa, Rob and FOX Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier for their incredible energy and support and for placing no limits on this ambitious new growth phase as we enter exciting new markets, verticals and business ventures.”
