Argonon Group-owned indie Remedy Productions has upped Bernie Costello, formerly director of production, to the post of MD, effective immediately.
With her new title, Costello will continue to cover a slate of programming and productions that includes the BBC1 comedy hybrid format Ready or Not, and Remedy Scotland’s Fifteen to One for Channel 4.
Having joined Remedy’s London office in 2006, Costello was responsible for launching the long-running series Freshly Squeezed and E4 Music, and for the last seven years has delivered programming for MTV, including The Official Top 40, MTV News and fact-ent format Fired by Mum and Dad.
“Remedy has a proven track record in music, youth and entertainment and I’m looking forward to growing the company further,” said Costello in a statement. “We are at a pivotal moment in our history and I am delighted to guide the business at this exciting time.”
“Bernie is a force to be reckoned with, warmhearted, spirited, punctilious and tough,” added Argonon Group CEO James Burstall. “She is extremely talented and is the right executive to manage Remedy’s success story to new heights.”
