Michael Vine (pictured), co-managing director of All3Media-owned indie Objective Productions, is stepping down after 18 years with the company.

Vine founded the Peep Show firm – which now has outposts in London, Glasgow and Los Angeles – in 1996 with Andrew O’Connor.

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.

“It has been seven years since we sold to All3Media and working with Steve Morrison and Farah Ramzan Golant along with their team has been a fascinating journey,” said Vine in a statement. “I am leaving Objective in very good shape with a highly talented team lead by Andrew Newman.”
