Chris Batten has joined Absolute as Executive Producer, following over twenty years at The Mill.

His new role will see him charged with broadening Absolute’s growing client base, scoping out new opportunities and maintaining key relationships.

Joining The Mill in 2001, Batten worked through various production roles before adding Head of New Business to his Executive Producer title in 2019. The role entailed building lasting relationships with high profile agencies, production companies and directors.

Batten says: “Absolute has a fantastic reputation for consistently producing incredible work and providing impeccable client service, as well as being a lovely bunch of people. Even with all their successes, their vision to develop the business further is inspiring. I’m thoroughly looking forward to being at the forefront of that growth.”

David Smith, CEO and Founder, says, “It’s a really exhilarating time for Absolute. We’ve doubled in size over the past few years, our client base is continuing to grow, and we have some exciting plans for development in 2022 and beyond. Chris’ expansive connections and experience will allow us to faster elevate our offering to world class industry talent. We couldn’t be happier to have him on board.”
