Los-Angeles based global digital media company Jukin Media has hired Chris Miller and Jenna Charles to newly created leadership positions in its creative department.

Miller (pictured, left) has been appointed VP of digital productions. Previously, Miller worked with Endemol Shine-owned reality focused prodco 51 Minds, and was an executive producer for National Lampoon. Throughout his career, Miller has produced nearly 50 original series and more than 3,000 episodes of digital programming.

Elsewhere, Charles (pictured, right) has been tapped for the role of executive-in-charge of production, tasked with oversight of budget and production.

Charles most recently worked for Fine Brothers Entertainment as executive in charge of production. She has more than a decade of experience in various line producer roles at Fine Brothers, T Group Entertainment and 51 Minds, where she worked alongside Miller.

Charles reports to Miller, while Miller will report to Jonathan Skogmo, founder and CEO, Jukin Media.

“Chris and Jenna bring a tremendous wealth of experience and well-rounded resumes that include digital media, TV, and filmmaking,” said Skogmo, in a statement. “As we continue to push the boundaries for how stories can be told using user-generated content as a narrative vehicle, Chris and Jenna will be an integral part of those efforts.”
