Hazlehurst named MD at Lion Scotland

All3Media-owned Lion Scotland has promoted Lisa Hazlehurst to a new role of managing director following the departure of Andrew Snowball last week.

Lisa HazlehurstHazlehurst joined the Scottish arm of Lion Television in 2013, and will now run the prodco “with a view to long-term strategic growth of the business”.

She had been executive producer of BBC Daytime series Homes Under the Hammer before taking the post.

Her new post comes after Snowball, Lion Scotland’s creative director, exited to join Tern Television as director of features and popular factual after four years with the All3 producer.

“Lisa has overseen the successful move of Homes Under the Hammer from London to our Glasgow base and proved to be an outstanding team leader,” said Lion TV co-MDs Shahana Meer and Richard Bradley.

“This is an exciting time for Lion in Scotland as we look to invest heavily in new talent and make the most of new opportunities. We would like to thank Andrew for all of his work and wish him all the best in his new role.”
