Producer Tom Guerrier joins Zut from Bite Communications in London, where he worked with a raft of high-profile brands including Amazon, Hasbro, The Trainline and Williams Martini Racing.

Guerrier has previously worked with Comedy Central, Coca Cola and The National Trust as well as the BBC and ITV, and has worked on more than 40 episodes of Come Dine with Me.

And Michael Kenny, a TV and film production graduate, joins the team as a production assistant.

Zut director, Mark Hancock, said: “This is set to be an exciting year of growth at Zut so it’s fitting that we are starting the new year with three fantastic new appointments.”

“While we are well known for high quality video production and developing content strategy, we are increasingly working with clients on other areas such as animation and live web broadcasting.

"The live web broadcasting side of the business is set to grow even further in 2017 as more brands start to embrace platforms such as Facebook Live, allowing for professional quality live broadcasting.”

Launching in 2008, Zut works with clients including Betfred, Everton, Umbro, The Hut Group, Carillion, Brabners, Russell Hobbs and the NHS.
