Following Chris Coelen’s departure from RDF Media USA at the end of last year, RDF Media Group announces that his position will be filled by current group director of factual, entertainment and comedy, Grant Mansfield. Mansfield will relocate from the UK to LA later this month, where he will retain his current role and start to head up the U.S. division. ‘Moving Grant to the U.S. is an amazing opportunity for him and us,’ said RDF Media Group CEO David Frank in a statement. ‘I’m hoping that his presence over there will lead to much greater collaboration between our creative teams in the UK and the U.S.’ Before joining RDF in 2002, Mansfield was director of programs at Granada and controller of documentaries, features and arts at ITV.
