Mark Wood

Macclesfield-based production company Ten Alps today announced the appointment of Mark Wood as its new chief executive.

This comes after Wood joined the Ten Alps board as a non-executive director in July at the point the company was given a £300k cash boost from its shareholders.

Wood said: “Ten Alps is a company full of talented, ambitious and highly creative people and the Group is now well positioned in markets showing sustained growth.

“We see new opportunities to expand broadcast and digital video production and build out our niche publishing platform. A major focus will be on utilising our cross-company video and web capabilities to accelerate Ten Alps’ growth as a content marketing and brand communications business.”

The University of Leeds graduate previously held the chief executive role at ITN and Future Plc.

Chairman of the Ten Alps group, Peter Bertram, said Wood joined the company as it restructured its operations and is starting to grow as a video, digital content and B2B publishing business.

“He brings a wealth of experience in television, publishing and digital media and will provide the leadership we need to accelerate the Group’s expansion in television programming, publishing and digital content and communications.”

Wood takes up the new role with immediate effect.
