London, United Kingdom, 2008/02/22 - Founder and inaugural CEO of Film24, Nicky Davis, has just been appointed as Managing Director of the Overdog Group.
Prior to founding Film24, the TV channel all about film that’s distributed on Sky, Joost and ROK TV mobile, Davis was Managing Consultant of NJD Group, one of the leading executive search and channel launch consultancies in the broadcast, film and home entertainment sector.
NJD Group has just merged with Overdog Marketing, the strategic marketing agency specialising in the home entertainment, computer games and mobile sectors, to form Overdog Group.
Davis said, “There’s something quite unique about merging a company that focuses on human capital, hiring highflying execs and management teams, with a company that’s focussed on getting the product and the brand right. Both companies have been operating in the same sector, but from a different perspective. When you consider what makes telecoms, media and technology companies work, it’s usually a combination of the right people and the right brand/marketing strategy. This is an exciting opportunity to deliver effective business solutions through engaging key personnel and marrying creativity with market insight to drive positive change. What the new merged Group will do is help ensure that entertainment companies have the right people, the right products and the right brands to survive and excel in a dog-eat-dog competitive world.”
Davis remains a non-executive Director of Film24.
