The non-executive chair at Icon UK and Skillset chair joins former MGM CFO Mike Corrigan and Lorimar Telepictures co-founder David Salzman.

All three have previously served on the board of directors of the made-for-television and feature film development, production and distribution company.

RHI Entertainment recapitalised in April and is rolling out a new slate of original productions headed by the miniseries Neverland starring stars Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and Keira Knightley and Treasure Island, whose cast includes Eddie Izzard, Elijah Wood and Donald Sutherland.

“This triumvirate of top-notch executives is eminently equipped to assume the interim leadership of RHI and establish a lasting foundation for not only maintaining its position as the leading provider of original long-form productions but also as a global supplier of a wider range of content across the full media spectrum,” RHI Entertainment board chair Gabriel de Alba said.
