The Farm’s Nicky Sargent and Vikki Dunn are stepping aside from their positions as joint managing directors of the Soho post business.

From January, they will take on the roles of joint chairmen, continuing to look after clients and the overall strategy of the business, but passing on responsibility for its day-to-day running.

That will be handled by the firm’s group technical director David Klafkowski and director of production Ian Dodd.

Dodd and Klafkowski were part of the team of 12 that launched The Farm in 1998.

“They are as experienced, talented and knowledgeable about TV post-production as anyone in the country,” said Sargent.

“Klaf is recognised as a technical expert by the whole industry and Ian is supremely adept at delivering complex productions.”
