New MDs for Wise Buddah
Wise Buddah have promoted two members of staff to become joint Managing Directors of the content, talent and facilities business.
The change sees current MD and founder Mark Goodier take on a less hands-on role as Chairman of the company.
Head of talent Chris North and head of studios and technology Dave Holt will take charge on a day-to-day basis between them, with Goodier concentrating on building high level relationships to bring new business to the company.
Chris joined Wise Buddah in 2000 from the Radio Academy. He moved to Wise Buddah Talent in 2001 as an agent and became head of talent in 2006. He helped Wise Buddah Talent pick up a 2007 Sony Gold for the Best Internet Programme Award.
Dave joined Wise Buddah in 2004 upon graduating from university. He has worked across sound engineer and technical roles from 2006 before he became head of studio facilities in 2009. He has been responsible for redeveloping and upgrading Wise Buddah’s studio department, and oversees the technical investment and development of the Wise Buddah Creative group.
Mark Goodier, new Chairman of Wise Buddah, said: "Chris and Dave are both so committed to the future of Wise Buddah and I have every confidence that under their day-to-day leadership the company will continue to build on its success. This provides me with the perfect opportunity to take a broader role and focus my attention on developing new opportunities for the business."
