London-headquartered indie Pulse Films has bolstered its senior production team with the dual elevations of Claire Wingate and Isabel Davis.

Wingate (pictured) has been upped to the newly created role of senior VP of production and operations. She will be tasked with expanding the company’s reach in the U.S., as well as overseeing production and operations across its film, gaming, branding entertainment and television output. She has overseen such projects as United States of Hate: Muslims Under Attack, The Last Days of Legal Highs and Hunting the Nazi Gold Train.

The new role will see Wingate relocating to the shop’s Los Angeles office, dividing her time between the firm’s LA, New York and London outposts to support Pulse’s international growth opportunities, as well as the company’s recently secured partnership with Vice Media, who acquired a majority stake in the studio in March.

Davis, meanwhile, has been promoted to head of production for unscripted television and branded content. Working out of the company’s UK office, she will work alongside Wingate on all unscripted television, gaming and branded entertainment content.

Previously, Davis worked across documentaries and series at The Garden Productions, and at Jamie Oliver‘s Fresh One Productions.

This comes after Pulse expanded its unscripted efforts in September, with the upping of Emma Cooper to MD of unscripted TV UK, and hiring of Fred Grinstein to head of unscripted U.S.

“Claire’s huge experience and great talent relations have been central to our success and expanding her remit will ensure we continue to be in safe hands for continued growth. Under her stewardship, and with the wonderfully talented Issy in a more senior role, we have a brilliant team in place to steer our current and future productions forward,” said Pulse Films co-CEO Marisa Clifford in a statement.
