Going forward, the group will be collectively helmed by chief executive Andrew Newman, MD Paul Sandler and  financial director Stuart Duthie, a spokesperson for Objective told realscreen.

Following his exit from Objective, Vine will manage talent through his agency, Michael Vine Associates, in addition to pursuing television and films.
