Managing Director UK & West Europe

Sammy joined Keshet in March 2014 and oversees the Company’s UK operation and expansion into Western Europe. Before joining Keshet, Sammy held CEO roles at September Films and DCD Media plc.

DAVINA MASSEY
Finance & Operations Director

Davina joined KI in April 2014 having gained her experience in various accounting roles both in practice and industry across three decades, of which 20 years have been in the TV industry. When she isn’t working she finds herself managing her teenage son’s academic, social and vocational life which seems to be a full time job in itself.

ELAINE DAY
Head of Production

Elaine has been part of Keshet UK since May 2015 when she supervised the production of ‘When Do You Get Off?’ for ITVBe and has since worked closely with the scripted and non-scripted teams across all new projects. Elaine’s wealth of experience is unrivalled, having overseen production for several leading indies over many years and delivering to all the UK broadcasters and many in the US. Elaine is Keshet UK’s voice of reason and her iron fist in an iron glove means her opinions are always respected.

LEGAL

Legal Counsel

Jenny joined Keshet in January 2017. Before joining Keshet, she was a Legal and Business Affairs Executive at DCD Media. Jenny has worked on programmes for all UK Broadcasters as well as the hit US show Bridezillas.

SCRIPTED TEAM

He co-developed the hit BAFTA award-winning BBC One spy series Spooks and executive produced the tenth and final series. Howard’s other credits include Hustle, Ashes to Ashes and Moving Wallpaper during his time at Kudos. Prior to joining Keshet, he was Head of TV at Vertigo films and has also worked in the commissioning team at Channel 4. His big hobby used to be watching a bunch of horses race around a field and trying to guess which one comes first, but nowadays he spends most of his time doting on his baby daughter.

AMANDA LEE
Development Associate

After finishing her MFA at UCLA’s Producers Program, Amanda left the bright lights and traffic-ridden streets of Los Angeles to pursue her dreams in scripted TV in traffic-ridden London instead. Having worked at Caryn Mandabach Productions, Channel 4’s Drama department and now Keshet UK, her transatlantic existence is firmly rooted back in the Big Smoke. When she’s not chasing after new writers and their creative brainpower, Amanda enjoys practicing oenophilia in preparation for her eventual retirement amongst hectares of vines.

David has headed up the company’s non-Scripted team in the UK since July 2016. Most recently, he devised the ITV2 show, Celebrity Showmance.

As a Commissioning Editor at Channel 4 and Editor of E4 he commissioned Made in Chelsea and was a founding member of the team on Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother. He spends most days in the office making references to TV shows from the 1980s which are totally lost on his young team.

IMOGEN GABONY-BROCK
