TV and multimedia content producer Zinc Media Group has appointed Roy Ackerman as MD of Films of Record and Director of International Strategy, TV.


His new role is to grow Films of Record, while working with the rest of the senior management team at Zinc Media to build and accelerate its business in the US and the wider global market.  


Ackerman joins Zinc Media from Pulse Films, where he was MD and “rebooted its TV division with a slate of big commissions,” says Zinc. 


Before Pulse, Ackerman was MD at Jamie Oliver’s Fresh One Productions and led the company from a celebrity vehicle into a global multi-genre indie. 


Prior to Fresh One, he was Creative Director at Diverse Production, overseeing programmes such as Man vs Wild, Operatunity and a raft of big documentaries.


Ackerman will be working closely at Zinc Media with Films of Record exec producer and director Katie Buchanan.
