A NEW FD has been named at UBC Media.
UBC, which creates premium content for the BBC and other networks, has appointed Chris Dent into the top finance role.
Dent takes over from Jenny Donald, who had returned to the company as interim FD in June 2011. She leaves to “continue her sailing adventures”, the company said in a statement to the stock exchange.
Dent spent ten years at Deloitte within audit and corporate finance, specialising in the media and technology sectors.
Simon Cole, chief executive, said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Jenny for her contribution over the last year and wish her well for the future. We are very delighted to have found and secured Chris. His experience should prove invaluable at a time of important strategic development for UBC.”
Shares in UBC climbed 0.13p in this morning’s trading, to 2.13p. The company’s market cap is £3.8m.
