Northwest Vision and Media, the regional screen agency, has expanded its board with four new appointments.

The new members are Debra Hayward, head of film at Working Title, Mark Dodson, chief executive of the Guardian Media Group’s regional newspaper division, Tony Foggett, chief executive of digital marketing and communications agency Code Computerlove, and Alex Connock, chief executive of Ten Alps.

The appointments follow a $4.4m (£2.7m) boost in the agency’s funding, which was announced in June. The funding has been allocated by the Northwest European Regional Development Fund to lead, support and promote the creative and digital industries in the area.

Steve Morrison, chair of Northwest Vision and Media said: “I have no doubt that Mark, Tony, Alex and Debra will make a dynamic contribution to our projects, help guide our sector specialist teams and shape the future direction and strategy of Northwest Vision and Media,

The agency, currently based in central Manchester, is moving to MediaCityUK, Salford Quays in the autumn, where other tenants will include the BBC.
