Gravity Media has appointed Meryl McLaren as its director, media services and facilities. 

In the role, McLaren will oversee the company’s post-production and broadcast rental offering in the EMEA region.

McLaren joins Gravity Media after 10 years at BBC Studioworks, where she started as an account manager before serving as Commercial Manager. Among other tasks, she was involved in the relaunch of London’s Television Centre in 2017. Before BBC Studioworks, Meryl worked at Pinewood Studios for three years as a sales executive.

Ed Tischler, Gravity Media managing director for the EMEA region, said: “Meryl is very well known and respected within the broadcast media industry and is the ideal candidate to further establish us as a world class partner to clients within the post-production and entertainment markets.”

McLaren herself added: “This is a really exciting opportunity for me to further grow the business and help our customers create content in increasingly efficient ways.” 

Gravity Media is currently trying to expand its business in supplying post-production equipment. It moved its operations from Ash Vale to a larger 15,000 square foot facility near Farnborough last year, and last month it hired Jamie Brewer as head of rental and post-production sales.
