Coffee & TV CEO and co-founder Derek Moore said: “It’s a privilege to welcome someone of Lisa’s calibre and experience to Coffee & TV as we take the next evolutionary step and further expand our creative offering. She has been an incredible support and powerful voice since she joined our board as a non-executive director in 2019, so we’re excited that she will now play a major strategic role within the day-to-day business. We’re confident that hiring two influential individuals like Lisa and Dan from the production world will allow Coffee & TV to explore lots of new opportunities.”
Green said: “I have loved being part of the Coffee & TV board and working with the founders to establish the next phase of their business. At eight years old, Coffee & TV is at a really exciting and crucial time. They know who they are, they have gathered some serious talent and created an inspiring company culture that transcends through to the clients. The team is really focused on how best to deliver the diversity of creative solutions that clients need from their production partners now.”
Keefe added: “I was attracted to Coffee & TV after I spoke to the founders because of their humanistic approach to growth and the fact that they hold themselves completely accountable to their values. Those foundations really set them apart within the industry, so it was an easy decision to come on board. There’s a huge amount of ambition and creative talent at Coffee & TV so I’m looking forward to developing the business.”
