Tin Roof Media has appointed former Banijay and The Ink Factory senior exec Rod Henwood as executive chairman.

Henwood has served as non-executive chairman of the group, which owns UK prodcos Blink Films and Outline Productions, since 2019.

His new role will see him lead the company’s growth strategy, with the group forecasting a 40% increase in turnover this year.

“Tin Roof has had a very successful three years. Our growth is accelerating, with a significant increase in turnover, hours in production, and with a growing spread of business across multiple genres for an expanding customer base of UK and US broadcasters and streamers,” said Henwood.

“We are now in position to investigate strategic opportunities for the business, including organic growth by bringing in new business winners and new labels, or through investment into the Group to support further expansion and take Tin Roof to the next stage.”

Henwood most recently served as COO at The Ink Factory and prior to that was CEO for the UK, Belgium and Netherlands at Banijay. He also served as new business director at Channel 4, MD of Central ITV and MD of Fox Kids.

“Rod has been working with Rockpool and the teams at Blink and Outline for the last three years and we’re very pleased with what we’ve achieved together in that time. Stepping up to exec chairman is the logical next step given the progress we’ve made and the scale the business is now reaching, and we’re delighted with his commitment to the Group,” said Andrew Green, head of Investments at Tin Roof shareholder Rockpool.

Blink’s recent credits include Miriam And Alan: Lost In Scotland for Channel 4 and Secrets Of The Oligarch Wives for CBS and Paramount+, while Outline is currently in production on new and returning series including Sarah Beeny: Breast Cancer, My Family and Me for Channel 4 and Michel Roux’s French Country Cooking for Food Network.
