Localisation and accessibility specialist, Pip Studios, part of Molinare Creative Group, has hired Shannon Sewell as Head of Client Services and Business Development.
The appointment “marks Pip Studios’ next stage of growth as it embarks on expanding services as well as looking at other lucrative markets outside of media.”
Sewell started out in broadcast recruitment and has since worked at various organisations including Ortana Media Group, part of Iyuno-SDI Group. At Ortana, Sewell oversaw the global media asset management (MAM), software integration platform and tape digitisation services. Following her time there, Sewell joined Take1, shortly before its acquisition by captioning and transcription company, Verbit. Specialising in accessibility and localisation, Sewell’s role focused on retaining and growing Take1’s client base as well as expanding the company’s offering by selling Vitac and Verbit products. Sewell was the first person to sell Vitac’s live captions to White Hart Lane under the acquisition.
Pip Studios Managing Director, Mark Sheffield, said, “In the last year alone, Pip has worked on the localisation for some of the World’s biggest films and games, including Spiderman 2, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, The Woman King and Fast-X. As we enter our fourth year, our ambitions are big in terms of both reach and diversification. Shannon’s track record of business development and growing a company’s client base is essential for us to realise those goals. Her approach to humanising the sales process alongside a knack for getting to the core of a customer’s needs, means she will be a great addition to the Pip Studios team and to our future.”
Sewell adds, “Pip Studios has an innovative approach and commitment to pushing creative boundaries. They have always been on my radar, and I am thrilled to be part of a team that is not only providing a service, but crafting experiences and being there every step of the creative process. Being part of the larger Molinare Creative Group truly means Pip has a unique proposition, unrivalled by anyone else in the industry. I honestly can’t wait to get started and show everyone what is in store for the future.”
