British financing group and producer Tin Roof Media has appointed former Reef Television executive Paul Hanrahan as group operations director.
In the position, Hanrahan joins the management team of Tin Roof subsidiaries, Blink Films and Outline Productions. He will be responsible for overseeing the daily business operations and growth strategy across the group.
Hanrahan had previously served as managing director of Reef Television over a 12-year period before departing in November 2016 to advise indies on financial planning and business operations. During his time at Reef, Hanrahan played a key role in the company’s 2015 acquisition by Zinc Media (then Ten Alps) and the subsequent integration of the business into the super-indie.
More recently, Hanrahan had been working for small indies in a management consultancy role advising on financial planning and business operations.
Tin Roof is backed by London-based private equity firm Rockpool Investments and is chaired by Charles Wace founder of the Twofour Group.
“I am delighted to be joining the management team at Blink Films and Outline Productions,” said Hanrahan in a statement. “Both companies have a reputation for making high quality, distinctive original and innovative factual content working with some of the best creative and production staff in the industry. It feels like an exciting period of growth for both companies and I cannot wait to get stuck in.”
“Paul brings a unique mix of production experience, strategic insight, great relationships with broadcasters, and unerring common-sense,” added Dan Chambers, co-founder of Blink Films.
