Pulse promotes pair for production


Claire WingatePulse Films has promoted Claire Wingate and Isabel Davis for expanded production posts.

Wingate has moved to London-based Pulse’s LA office after being promoted to senior VP, production and operations. She will divide her time between LA, New York and London, supporting international growth plans and Pulse’s partnership with its parent, Vice Media.

As director of productions and operations, Wingate has overseen major UK broadcaster programmes such as United States of Hate: Muslims Under Attack, Last Days of Legal Highs and Hunting the Nazi Gold Train.

Davis, meanwhile will become head of production for unscripted and branded, working with Wingate on unscripted television, gaming and branded entertainment content.

This comes soon after Pulse hired industry heavyweight Davud Karbassioun as global president, commercials and branded entertainment.

It also follows the appointment of Emma Cooper as managing director of unscripted TV in the UK to replace Roy Ackerman, and Viceland exec Fred Grinstein to lead US unscripted efforts.

Vice acquired Pulse last year.
