Commenting on her appointment, Muirhead said: “I’m delighted to be given this opportunity to support Hakan and all the team as Vice Chair on Pact Council.  I have always firmly believed that Pact’s role in providing a collective voice for UK indies is essential to safeguard and promote our position as world renowned content makers, and to support us in our ambition to grow and remain competitive.  In this incredibly challenging time, we need Pact more than ever and I am passionate about enabling them to continue their vital work.”

Pact Chair, Hakan Kousetta, added: “I’m delighted that Jane has agreed to be Vice Chair. Not only is she an incredibly well-respected producer but has proven to be a fantastic contributor to the activities of Pact Council.  Her stepping up to Vice Chair will benefit all of our members and, in addition, help ensure the issues facing those working in the nations and regions remain a key focal point for Pact policy and activities. I look forward to working closely with Jane to navigate the tricky years ahead of us as we emerge into a post-Covid world.”
