Commercials house Rogue has hired kate Taylor, previously MD of SKUNK London, as its new Managing Director/Executive Producer.


She takes the helm from Rogue co-founder David van der Gaag and will be working alongside Executive Producer and Head of Production James Howland, with a brief to continue the evolution and reinvigoration of the company first founded in 1998.


Charlie Crompton, co founding partner of Rogue says “Kate is widely regarded as one of the smartest and most creative EPs in London. She deserves that reputation because she’s proved that she’s brilliant at finding and nurturing talent, is immersed in the craft of film-making and is also an endlessly creative and collaborative producer.” 


David van der Gaag, continued “I can’t think of a better qualified MD to come in and complement James’ production skills. Together they’re going to be a phenomenal partnership and we’re genuinely flattered that they buy into our ambitious vision for Rogue and the broader group of Blink/Rogue/Carnage companies going forward.”


Taylor has previously worked in production at Rattling Stick, Biscuit and RSA before setting up and managing SKUNK London, 


She says: “Running SKUNK London has been a privilege. We’ve had some considerable successes and I am extremely proud of what we’ve achieved. Now, to be MD at such a prestigious production house as Rogue is just brilliant. I’m excited about the future and share their vision for growing and enduring success. I look forward to building on Rogue’s pedigree as a primary destination for excellence and established, top-level directors, as well as a nurturing home for the new generation of raw, emerging talent. I’m just thrilled to be a Rogue”.
