She has also served as series editor of the third and fourth series of The Apprentice in the UK.
“Kelly has done an exceptional job in delivering brilliant popular factual programs to a range of broadcasters over the last 18 months and has a bulging development slate which promises so much going into next year,” said Henrietta Conrad, CEO of Shine TV and Princess Productions. “It is credit to her that Shine TV is in such great shape, the promotion is richly deserved and I look forward to continuing to work with her.”
“We are in a good place with programs in production for all of the major broadcasters, and more to come,” added Webb-Lamb. “I’ve got a fantastic team around me and together we are going to continue to grow the company and to have fun as we do it. I am delighted to be taking up the mantle of MD and am really looking forward to what the future will bring.”
