Kelly Webb-Lamb is stepping down from her role as MD of Shine TV at the end of the year.

The former Princess Productions exec joined the Endemol Shine Group-owned company as creative director in 2012 before becoming MD in 2013. She is expected to work with Shine’s senior team to facilitate the transition before “taking a break” ahead of her next move.

The company says it will announce her replacement in due course.

Across her three years at Shine, Webb-Lamb oversaw such projects as The Island with Bear Grylls and Hunted for Channel 4. Other recent credits include the documentary series All Change at Longleat and daytime show Council House Crackdown for BBC1, as well as The Force: Manchester for Sky1.

Prior to joining Shine TV, Webb-Lamb served as director of factual programs at Princess Productions, where she oversaw the factual slate and was an executive producer on Sky 1′s Got to Dance. Before Princess, she exec-produced a number of programs, including Gordon Ramsay Cookalong Live and Ramsay’s Great British Nightmare for Channel 4, as well as Mary Queen of Charity Shops for BBC2.

“[Webb-Lamb] leaves Shine TV with our great thanks and in formidable shape to be taken forward by new leadership next year. We will all take the time over the next few months to explore who and what form this could best take,” said Richard Johnston, CEO of Endemol Shine UK, in a statement.
