Media executive Zara Gregory has been appointed to the role of director of operations for digital content agency Little Dot Studios, an All3Media company.
In the newly-created position, Gregory (pictured) will report to Little Dot COO Kevin Gibbons and work with the company’s leadership team to develop and implement an overall strategy for the business. She will also be tasked with designing and driving an agenda that supports long-term sustainable growth across the company.
Gregory brings more than two decades of industry experience to Little Dot. She was most recently at Sky, where she spent five years as group head of transformation and was responsible for delivering transformation programs and instituting cultural change across the broadcaster’s content operations arm and Sky News division. Prior to her time at Sky, Gregory held a number of key roles at the BBC across TV and production, including leading the transition of BBC3 from linear to online.
The past 18 months have seen Little Dot Studios undergo a period of growth as it expands its worldwide activities, including hiring a new senior management team in the U.S. and the acquisition of new businesses like History Hit and WING. The company expects to increase this growth over the next several years.
“Little Dot is rapidly scaling up as a global business, following a period of accelerated expansion over the past 18 months,” Gibbons said in a release. “Zara’s caliber and experience at major media brands makes her the ideal person to transform our operations and deliver significant, sustainable growth across the company, while also meeting our ambitious environmental and inclusivity commitments. We’re thrilled to have her join the team.”
Added Gregory: “It really is a huge privilege to be joining Little Dot, and to work with the teams across Europe, the U.S. and Asia creating and distributing such an incredible range of innovative content for some of the world’s biggest brands. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to help contribute to the growth of a company full of so many talented, ambitious and passionate people.”
