UK producers trade body, Pact, has appointed Laura Mansfield vice chair of the Pact Council.
Mansfield co-founded Outline Productions in 1999 and is the indie’s managing director.
She first joined the Pact council in January 2013. The Pact council oversees the work of the trade body, signing off budgets and financial plans, and formulating the organisation’s policies and campaigns.
“I’m delighted to have been appointed as vice chair of Pact and to be able to support Sara Geater in her role as chair.
“We’re in a broadcast climate which is fast changing, with new opportunities and considerable threats to the survival and growth of British independent production companies, and I’m passionate about enabling Pact to do its vital work”.
Mansfield takes up her post with immediate effect, and her term will run until December 2016.
