Tim Hincks has been named as president of the new joint venture between Endemol, Shine Group and CORE Media. 

Hincks will report to Sophie Turner Laing, the incoming CEO of the global production combine.

Hincks, who will be based in London, will work with Turner Laing to develop and grow the creative and strategic direction of the new company, and will have specific responsibility for the UK and US.

His appointment follows news earlier this month that Just Spee, the current Endemol CEO, and Alex Mahon, CEO of Shine Group, are stepping down in 2015.

“This new joint venture will establish one of the world’s most exciting, diverse and dynamic businesses for creative talent,” said Tim Hincks.  “It will be a place that gives the best people in our industry the freedom to pursue new ideas that they believe in and to take creative risks to realize their ambitions on a global scale.”

“I’m delighted that Tim, whose experience and understanding of creative entrepreneurship and talent is first class, will be working with me to grow this new group," said Sophie Turner Laing. “The Company will be one of the world’s most innovative and diverse content creators, with exceptional talent, commercial expertise and resources that enable talent in each market to deliver outstanding content across genres and platforms.”

Hincks first joined Endemol in 1999 having worked on factual and current affairs programming for the BBC since 1990. He went on to hold a number of senior management roles, initially at the Company’s UK operation.  These included Creative Director (2002-2005) and Chief Creative Officer (2005-2008), before his appointment as Endemol UK’s CEO in 2008, when he also joined the International Board and the Creative Board of Endemol Group.  Hincks was appointed President of Endemol Group in 2012, responsible for overseeing the company’s operations in the US and UK, as well as content creation and commercial exploitation across the Group’s worldwide network.

21st Century Fox and Apollo recently announced a final agreement to bring together Endemol, Shine Group and CORE Media.

21st Century Fox and Apollo will jointly manage the newly created group, with each owning 50 per cent.

The group’s businesses will have creative operations in over 30 markets, with a portfolio of over 600 formats in both the scripted and non-scripted genres; coupled with digital, gaming, and distribution operations.
