In a statement, Carter said: “Jeremy and Kirstie have played an integral part in the creation of the factual force that Pioneer is today and it’s fantastic to see them take the helm at such an exciting time.
“As chairman, I look forward to working with them in this new era for the company – and helping to retain Pioneer’s position as one of the world’s most successful factual indies.”
Pioneer’s titles include the In the Womb series; Christianity: A History; Raging Planet; and 3D title Storm City.
