Watson comes from Pilot Film and Television Productions, where he was sales manager across broadcast and inflight, finding international homes for the company’s distinctive travel and history content, including Empire Builders, Great Railway Journeys of Europe and the successful, long-running franchise, Globe Trekker. Prior to this, he spent more than four years working in A&E Network’s London-based sales team, covering the EMEA region.
At DRG, Watson will be reporting to commercial director, Adam Barth. Barth commented: 'With his mix of big company experience and small company entrepreneurial spirit – not to mention love of TV - Jack’s background makes him a perfect addition to the DRG team. We are glad to have him onboard and look forward to introducing him to our broadcaster, platform and producer clients as we head towards MIPCOM'.
In addition to Jack Watson, DRG is also welcoming Olivia Morgan to the team, who joins as sales and acquisitions coordinator.
