Sony Pictures Television has formally named Wayne Garvie as president of international production following a months-long transition period.

Garvie, who had previously been overseeing SPT’s international productions on an interim basis, will continue managing the company’s scripted and unscripted creative teams outside of the U.S., as well as its 20 owned and joint-venture international production companies.

Based in London, Garvie will continue to report into Anthony Vinciquerra, who was recently appointed chair and CEO at Sony Pictures Entertainment in May.

Garvie, who joined SPT in 2012, most recently held the title of chief creative officer for international production at Sony Pictures Television. In this role, Garvie led creative development across the studio’s global network of prodcos and oversaw such deals as SPT’s recent partnership with Stolen Picture.

Prior to joining the Sony brand, Garvie served as All3Media’s managing director of international production, responsible for the company’s growth in the U.S. Previously, Garvie held senior positions in UK broadcasting, including MD for content and production at BBC Worldwide, head of entertainment for the BBC and director of broadcasting for Granada.

“Wayne has been a strong leader, galvanizing our international production team with his energy, enthusiasm and creativity without missing a beat,” said Vinciquerra in a statement. “I want to thank Wayne for his hard work over the last few months of transition at SPT. We look forward to growing this important line of business for SPE with Wayne officially at the helm.”

Sony Pictures Television produces original and formatted scripted and unscripted content for television viewing across the globe. The company currently has production companies that serve France, Germany, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, Latin America, Brazil, the Middle East, Asia, China and Russia.
