Evolutions, the post-production house with facilities based in London and Bristol, has appointed Jonathon Kemp as chief executive officer. Kemp will fill the role held until recently by Simon Kanjee, who has left to explore new opportunities.

Kemp is charged with leading the next phase of investment and accelerate Evolutions’ growth.

Having floated Shed Media on the AIM Stock market, Kemp has significant experience in rapidly growing businesses in the production arena. He drove growth of Shed from an SME to a turnover of over £100m by organic growth and acquisitions. He subsequently oversaw the sale of Shed Media to Warner Bros.

More recently, Kemp led the sale of TV production company WAG Media to the French Asacha Media Group.

“I am hugely excited about the opportunity and the potential to accelerate the growth of Evolutions,” says Kemp.“As part of the recent management changes, Simon Kanjee will leave the business as part of a planned exit. Simon was always intending to leave the business following a period of stabilisation post investment.

“Having led the investment and the post investment period Simon will be departing from Evolutions to explore new opportunities. Simon leaves with the best wishes and thanks from all of the management team for his work in building Evolutions from inception to a market leading post-production house and all of the hard work in securing investment and the future of Evolutions.”
