All 4, the OTT platform for UK pubcaster Channel 4, has bolstered its commissioning team with the appointments of Joshua Buckingham (pictured, left), Pegah Farahmand (center) and Thom Gulseven (right).

The three new commissioning editors will report to All 4 managing editor Charlie Palmer and will be responsible for curating original and acquired digital-first content across the channel. All programming on the free on-demand channel will be featured alongside live TV, catch-up from C4′s broadcast channels and box sets of iconic series.

The team will work through Palmer and into head of All 4 and digital content Richard Davidson-Houston. Editorial leadership for original content will be provided by deputy chief creative officer Ralph Lee.

Buckingham most recently served as a producer at Endemol Shine Group, while Farahmand joined the Channel 4 portal from Vice Media last year to take up her current position as editor of Random Acts, a role she will retain in addition to working on All 4.

Gulseven, meanwhile, previously served as a senior producer within Channel 4 Online and has also held content editor titles at MSN and Elsevier.

Rounding out All 4′s commissioning team are editors Todd Florance, Lizzy Keene and Daisy Mount.
