Leopard Films UK And USA Get New Heads Of Production

Leopard Films, the UK and US-based independent production company has recruited Nicki Gottlieb as new Head of Production and promoted Wendy Hall to the newly formed position of Head of Production in the New York office.
Gottlieb has over 10 years production experience and was poached from indie Diverse where she was Production Manager overseeing such properties as 'Britain's Rich List' for ITV, 'Indian Finishing School' and 'Dad's Army' for Channel 4.
Previous to that she worked at Endemol subsidiary Brighter Pictures alongside Leopard Film's current Head of Programming, Dan Berbridge working on reality show 'There's Something About Miriam'.
Leopard Films currently has 120 hours in production from the UK and US bases with much more in development. Gottlieb explained the challenge: "Leopard has grown enormously in the last six months with four commissions hitting the slate in the last month alone, clearly this is an exciting time for the company and my career.
"I like the way the company works with its range of established brands and excellent ideas in the pipeline. I hope to be able to use my experience to oversee production and deliver in this period of rapid growth."
Over in the US office in New York, Wendy Hall has been promoted to Leopard US's first Head of Production, after progressing over the past five years through Leopard's successful work experience programme.
Hall has worked in both the UK and US offices and for Leopardrama before filling her current role which has her overseeing 'Hidden Potential', 'Dear Genevieve' and 'Man Caves'.
James Burstall, Chief Executive Officer of Leopard Films said of the moves: "Nicki is a feisty, incisive and vigilant production manager and we are delighted she has joined us at a time of major growth at Leopard. She is full of ideas on how to get the highest production values at the best value for money and she is a great people person.
"Wendy has grown up through Leopard and we are proud that she has now taken on the vital role of Head of Production in New York. This is a testament to her skill, imagination and commitment.
"She's already made a significant impact on our business in the States and we are excited about her future in the company."
