ITV STUDIOS GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT APPOINTS NBCU’s DAVID WILCOX TO EMEA SALES TEAM

Wilcox will report in to Greg Johnson, EVP, EMEA & Americas, who completes his senior team after taking up the role at the beginning of the year. Following the arrival of Mike Kelley as SVP for the Americas in April, Wilcox joins Jennifer Ebell, SVP, EMEA, Jayne Redpath, SVP, UK and Ireland and Kevin Morgan, who has stepped up to the role of SVP, UK Home Entertainment and Global Accounts, based out of the London office.

Wilcox originally joined ITVS GE in 2005, working his way up to VP, Sales North West EMEA before he joined NBCU, where he was most recently VP Sales Liaison for the Nordics and Benelux regions.

“I’m extremely happy to welcome David back home to ITV and to finalise my senior sales team," said Johnson. “David is not only familiar to many of us here already but also to our clients in EMEA, which means he will be able to hit the ground running due to his excellent relationships.

“As our exciting content becomes ever broader, his arrival means we are now perfectly placed as a group to maximise opportunities for our global buyers and develop new and lasting relationships across the world.”

Wilcox said: “I’m delighted to be re-joining ITV at this exciting time for the company. I have watched with interest in recent years as ITVS GE has grown substantially to build a broad portfolio of global content to complement their longstanding pipeline of the best of British TV Series. I look forward to working with the team and our partners to bring this content to viewers across EMEA.”
