Digital media facility Loft London has recruited David Barrett to the newly created role of commercial director.

Barrett will work with co-founder Davide Maglio on building relationships with broadcasters and content owners in the UK and internationally.

He joins Loft from media facility Re:fine, where he was business development manager.

Maglio said: “David’s relationships with large studio and broadcast content owners, as well as independent production companies, will be invaluable to Loft London as we continue to grow our business.”
