Pay TV channel TV1 has retrenched several of its executives following a review of its business operations.
Those impacted by the restructure are Selena Crowley Director Programming and Acquisitions, Will Usic Creative Director, Michael Shephard Publicity Director and Catherine Field Marketing Director.
In a statement released yesterday, the company, which also operates SF (formerly SciFi), said all four had been integral in the channel’s growth and would be missed personally and professionally.
“Following significant reviews of all aspects of the TV1 business, the decision has been made to streamline the operating structure, resulting in immediate reduction in employee numbers,” it said.
“The decision does not reflect on individual performance or capability, rather positions the channel strongly to meet future challenges.
“The restructure will deliver greater operating efficiencies and provide our channels the platform to continue to invest in content and brand.”
SciFi recently rebranded as SF while TV1 is dominated by nostalgic TV and several crime franchises including CSI, Law & Order and NCIS.
The channel says there are no other planned redundancies.
