SLR Celebrates 10th with New Execs

Australia’s SLR Productions has made two new executive appointments as it celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Helen Thwaites has joined the company as head of business affairs and Jo Tucker has been appointed as head of finance.

“[Jo and Helen] both bring a wealth of knowledge and industry experience to their respective positions and will be valuable additions to the SLR Productions team,” says Suzanne Ryan, chief executive officer, SLR Productions. “Their appointments come at a time when the company is continuing to grow as we expand into consumer digital content via the ‘Guess How Much I Love You–Interactive Episodes’ iPad application and our first live-action production, ‘Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures.’”

In her new position, Thwaites will manage the business of SLR’s current and future slate of productions. She joins SLR Productions with more than 15 years of experience in the industry, most recently as business affairs manager, commissioned content at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Tucker joins SLR as a chartered accountant with more than 15 years commercial experience. Prior to joining the company she worked at Our Deal and Network Ten's Digital Media division.
