Banijay-owned Screentime Group has hired Shine Australia exec Rory Callaghan (pictured) as CEO and appointed Bob Campbell as executive chairman.

Callaghan will join later in the year once his term as Shine Australia’s executive director ends. During his time at the Sydney-based company, he grew its unscripted slate and oversaw its first foray into scripted. Prior to that, he was the chief executive officer at Southern Star Entertainment, which rebranded as Endemol Australia in 2013.

Campbell’s appointment is effective immediately.

“As a group we intend to significantly increase our scripted and non-scripted output and Screentime will play a big role in our plans,” said Banijay Group CEO Marco Bassetti, in a statement. “We are very pleased to have an executive as well-known, well-qualified and prolific as Rory to take Screentime and Banijay Group to the next level.”

Both Callaghan and Campbell will report to Bassetti.
