Former Head of Production for Capital and Capital XTRA Chris Nicoll is to join the station branding service IMGR.
He takes up his new role as Creative Director from February 2016, based at IMGR in London to lead the team and shape the future of the production service.
Chris says: “IMGR has an incredibly talented and passionate group of people behind it, with a sound developed by super-producer George Taylor. I’m excited to be joining him and working alongside such a talented team further crafting the creative and sonic possibilities.”
Prior to joining Global Radio, Chris was producing imaging for one of New Zealand’s ZM, before leaving to spend six years at Capital.
As part of the agreement IMGR’s parent company, Wise Buddah Jingles will distribute Chris’s wizzFX productions.
Wise Buddah Jingles MD Paul Plant says: “Chris has a great reputation as one of the world’s leading imaging producers and sound designers. He has incredible leadership skills and is an all round nice guy! It is an absolute honour to add him to our team and the creative opportunities that lie ahead are limitless. The addition of Chris to the team is a great proposition and will propel IMGR to the next level in 2016”.
