Brave Bison Group has announced the appointment of Claire Hungate as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective from September.
Robin Miller, Chairman of Brave Bison, said: "I am delighted that Claire has chosen to join Brave Bison and further the Group's efforts to create value as the owner and operator of captive video content. Claire has an excellent track record in working in the UK creative industry, alongside her digital strategy experience of forming and developing relationships with companies such as Facebook and Google. This gives the Board confidence that she can deliver strong and profitable growth. At this stage, I would also like to thank Kevin Deeley, Chief Operating and Finance Officer, who has taken on the interim responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer since January 2017. As a result of Kevin's efforts, the Company has progressed towards our goal of being a high-margin and profitable business while making strategic investments to support long-term growth, including the recently launched Yellowstone Studios and Rebel FC."
Claire Hungate said: "At a dynamic time for the global content market, Brave Bison is on an exciting journey to becoming a formidable force in modern media. The focus on social video, quality content and powerful distribution places the business within one of the fastest growing segments of the industry. Content is still king and distribution has become queen; the creation and distribution of owned intellectual property provides a high-value route to further content monetisation opportunities. I thoroughly look forward to joining."
