Tinopolis Group has appointed Wall to Wall’s, Jonathan Hewes as ceo of Mentorn Media and Pioneer Productions.
Hewes will be responsible for the day to day running of both production companies and will report jointly to Arwel Rees, ceo of the Tinopolis Group and John Willis, Creative Director of the Tinopolis Group and Chairman of Mentorn Media. Stuart Carter, founder of Pioneer Productions, is also stepping down from his role as Chairman of the company.
Hewes has worked at Wall to Wall for 20 years, where he held senior roles as Head of Factual Programmes, Creative Director, Deputy Chief Executive and most recently Head of International. He was involved in the development and production of programming for all of the major UK broadcasters, National Geographic Channel, PBS, HBO and Discovery. He also initiated Wall to Wall’s move into theatrical documentaries with Oscar and BAFTA-winning Man On Wire, which he executive produced. Hewes began his broadcasting career as a journalist with BBC’s Nationwide  before moving on to be a producer of The Tube, prior to joining Wall to Wall in 1995.
Arwel Rees says, “Jonathan brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge and award winning programming experience on the international stage, so we are delighted to welcome him to the Tinopolis Group. Both companies are renowned for producing great content for broadcasters around the world, and Jonathan has all the skills to guide them to the exciting next stage of their development.”
Jonathan Hewes, says, “It was going to take something special to tempt me away from Wall to Wall after 20 years, but the opportunity at Mentorn Media and Pioneer Productions, two more great names in UK factual production, is just that. Both companies have outstanding reputations both in the UK and internationally, and I’m excited to work with both teams to help them continue to build on their success.”

He will start his new role on 24 August.
