All3Media has appointed Sara Geater as its new chief operating officer.

The former CEO of Fremantle Media UK takes over the new role with immediate effect, replacing previous chief operating officer, Jane Turton, who was promoted to All3Media chief executive officer earlier this year.

Geater’s career spans TV, film and digital from both the business and creative perspectives. In 2014 she was elected chair of Pact council having stepped down from her role at Fremantle Media UK after seven years with the company.  Prior to this, Geater was head of commercial affairs at Channel 4 following a four- year stint as director of rights & business affairs at the BBC where she negotiated the first Codes of Practice between the BBC and the independent sector.

Geater has also served as head of film & TV at Avalon, head of production at Miramax Films and Channel 4 drama co-production executive. Geater’s television career began at LWT as a production accountant, and she is also a barrister and a Fellow of the RSA.

Jane Turton, CEO, All3Media said: “Her experience in television production, talent management, rights and deal making is going to be a huge asset to the group as we grow the business both in the UK and overseas.”

Sara Geater, COO, All3Media added: “The opportunity to work with Jane Turton and all the companies within the All3Media group, along with the company’s plans for growth is one not to be missed.”

All3Media comprises 21 production and distribution companies including Bentley, Company, Lime, Lion, Little Dot Studios, Maverick, Neal Street, North One, Objective, Optomen, One Potato Two Potato and Studio Lambert. 

All3Media is owned jointly between Discovery Communications and Liberty Global.
