Singapore, July 6th 2018 – Beach House Pictures (BHP), one of Asia’s largest indies is delighted to announce the appointment of Neal Moore as Head of Content & Business Development.
Neal replaces Jim Ribbans who will be leaving the company after four years. Neal’s hire will boost BHP’s growth in branded and scripted content, as well as strengthen its content partnerships with digital and agency players. Neal will also be in charge of developing BHP’s existing intellectual properties.
Neal has nearly 20 years’ experience in TV, publishing, advertising and film in the UK, USA and Asia and joins BHP a year after selling his stake in leading Singaporean content marketing agency Click2View, which he co-founded in 2010. Neal spent the past year developing his own slate of original content, some of which will be brought into the Beach House stable.
BHP’s Managing Director Jocelyn Little said, “We are sad to see Jim go after a very productive stint with Beach House. But very excited to welcome Neal to the family. Neal adds a fresh perspective and his many years of experience in content, sales and marketing to BHP’s growth plans, at a time of great disruption in our industry.”
“The media industry is undergoing unprecedented change with new players and models constantly emerging,” said Neal Moore, “however if we think strategically and act entrepreneurially we can capitalize on that flux and expand Beach House Pictures’ world class reputation for factual content into the scripted and digital realms too.”
