As well as conceptualising and creating campaigns PPC also produces local language versions of their client’s marketing assets for use around the world.

PPC are the clear leaders in UK film marketing and we invested in the business to support the growth in to new markets and geographies. Early on, we brought deep industry expertise to the board by appointing Stewart Till in as NED (he was also actively involved in the due diligence process).

Stewart spent four years as Chairman and CEO of UIP, as well as holding a number of other senior roles at Universal, Signpost, Polygram, BSkyB and CBS/Fox. He was previously Chair of the UK Film Council and was awarded a CBE for his services to the British Film Industry in 2000.

We are working closely with the team to grow the business. In 2011 we hit a major milestone by opening a Los Angeles office in response to client demand and have further strengthened the senior team.
