As part of Twofour’s Middle East expansion, the company is promoting Paul Harper to the role of general manager of Twofour Arabia, while the prior GM, Jonney Steven, will head up Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Harper, who has been with Twofour for the past 12 years in various roles including producer, director, and account manager, will manage a team of producers and production managers out of Twofour Arabia’s offices in Abu Dhabi.

He will report to Jonney Steven, former GM, who has been upped to head of MENA. Steven will work across Twofour’s UK and Arabia operations, as he focuses on strengthening the company’s client base across the MENA region.

Twofour Arabia’s output includes adventure documentary In The Footsteps of Thesiger for Abu Dhabi Media, which has recently been sold to NGCI’s Nat Geo Adventure channel.

“We are very proud of the growth of Twofour Arabia over the last three years under the leadership of Jonney Steven,” said Charles Wace, group chief executive. “We are delighted that he has now agreed to look after the whole of the Middle East as we continue, with Paul, to grow our business in the region.”
