Radio and television production company Celador has announced that senior management within the company have completed the first stage of a total buyout of the business, led by Managing Director, Danielle Lux.
The management team sharing ownership of the company alongside Danielle Lux are Heather Hampson, Director of Production, and Murray Boland, Head of Factual. In addition, Celador Productions management includes Ruth Wrigley, recently appointed Head of Entertainment and Liz Anstee, Head of Radio.
As well as popular TV programmes such as 'You are what you eat' and 'Popcorn', the company also produces many radio productions for BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4.
In the last few months five Celador radio productions, My Blue Heaven, Marks and Gran’s first radio play; Where In The World with John Simpson; second series of comedy drama Three Off the Tee and Richard Herring’s That Was Then This Is Now; and James Bond Short Stories, have all broadcast on the BBC stations.
Danielle Lux, Managing Director of Celador Productions, commented:
"This is an amazing opportunity. It's not every day that a fistful of programmes, including You Are What You Eat, and one of Britain's best production companies are landed in your lap. But that is what has happened to us. In just a couple of years we've gone from being employees hired to grow the company to becoming its owners. Heather, Murray and myself are very grateful to Paul and passionately committed to keeping Celador Productions a creative company for creative people."
Celador Productions is now a separate company to Celador International, owners of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
