Mitre Studios has appointed former Talkback MD and BBC Commissioning Editor, Ed Sleeman as its new Managing Director.

The appointment of Sleeman as Managing Director is “a clear sign of the ambition Ant and Dec have to build Mitre Studios into a fully-fledged production powerhouse.”

His role will be to “lead the team and drive content opportunities across multiple platforms and genres.”

Ed Sleeman said: “I am thrilled to be joining Mitre Studios during such an exciting phase for the company. I was drawn to the job by the vision and tremendous ambition outlined by Ant and Dec. Their aspirations to expand the company’s footprint as both an originator and producer of global formats, alongside becoming a prolific producer of Digital and Branded Content resonated with me deeply. I can’t wait to get started and contribute to this inspiring vision.”

Declan Donnelly said: “We have admired Ed’s work from afar for a long time and we’re so pleased to be bringing him on board at this really exciting time for Mitre Studios. He shares the same passion for television and digital content as we do and will be a fantastic leader for our team.”

Ant McPartlin said: “Ed brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with him and will be an invaluable asset as we move into the next stage of Mitre’s evolution as a provider of amazing, ambitious and joyful TV and digital content.”

Sleeman will report directly to the Mitre board and will oversee the continued growth into branded and non-branded content.
