LADstudios Names Alex Morris New Director


Alex Morris, formerly the chief creative officer of Barcroft Studios, has been appointed as director of LADstudios.

In his new role, Morris will lead a global team at LADstudios with a remit to increase the size of the department by 50 percent by the end of 2022. He will also work to build commercial and creative opportunities across the business’s original video IP, channels, show brands and branded-entertainment offerings.

Morris will report to Arian Kalantari, co-founder and COO of LADbible Group, and work closely with LADstudios’ senior management team.

Morris said: “This is an incredibly exciting time to join LADbible Group and lead the charge on their content offering. LADstudios’ reputation is going from strength to strength, and the next year promises a huge opportunity to innovate, double down on production, expand across multiple platforms and create unique relationships with new generations and creators.’’

Kalantari said: “Alex brings with him years of experience and success in the digital content space. His vision for the future of LADstudios will ensure we redefine content and social consumption globally, and I’m looking forward to working with him on this next and exciting new chapter.”
