ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has appointed former NBCUniversal executive David Wilcox as the company’s SVP of sales for EMEA.
In the role, Wilcox will be based out of the company’s London office and report to Greg Johnson, EVP of EMEA & Americas, who completes his senior team after taking up the position at the beginning of the year.
Wilcox will join the team sitting alongside Mike Kelley, SVP for the Americas; Jennifer Ebell, SVP of EMEA; Jayne Redpath, SVP of UK and Ireland; and Kevin Morgan, SVP of UK Home Entertainment and Global Accounts.
Wilcox is returning to ITVS GE, having spent nine years with the company prior to joining NBCU in 2014, where he was most recently VP Sales Liaison for the Nordics and Benelux regions. He originally joined ITVS GE in 2005 and rose to become VP of sales for North West EMEA.
“I’m extremely happy to welcome David back home to ITV and to finalize my senior sales team,” said Johnson in a statement. “David is not only familiar to many of us here already but also to our clients in EMEA, which means he will be able to hit the ground running due to his excellent relationships.
Johnson continued: “As our exciting content becomes ever broader, his arrival means we are now perfectly placed as a group to maximize opportunities for our global buyers and develop new and lasting relationships across the world.”
