Production Bureau to launch country pub office space following senior hires

Agency Production Bureau is launching a new 'pub' office space in Norfolk, after a major employee expansion including the hire of three new directors.

In the past six months Production Bureau has hired Simon Price as creative director, Eve Murray as director of Scotland and Steve Neave as director of technical, after the agency acquired his company, RDC Audio. In addition, Adam Wright has been hired as head of workshop, Sonia Last has been made set designer, Tim Biddle has been appointed designer and Hannah Shute has become production assistant.

In line with the agency’s expansion, The Dog pub in Swardeston is currently being refurbished to open in the New Year for 30 people, adding to the existing office space on a farm in the same Norfolk village, near Norwich.

"Earlier this year we moved our exhibition and staging division into a purpose-built workshop and warehouse and now the creative and live event team will move into a former coaching inn," said Price. "It’s an amazing listed building that we are breathing new life into and it will provide a quirky and inspiring space for our creative team."

Meanwhile, Murray is keen to expand the company’s offering in Scotland. "We have seen a steady rise in new enquiries and we are currently recruiting a senior producer," she added.
