Mario Dubois joins us as Development Director

We’re delighted to announce that the latest addition to our growing team is Mario Dubois, who until recently was Executive Producer Multiplatform Productions, at the BBC.

Whilst at the BBC Mario was responsible for a number of award-winning multiplatform brands including Dragons’ Den and The Chelsea Flower Show, as well as being responsible for strategic initiatives such as BBC Commissioning and BBC Careers online output. Most recently, Mario conceived and was responsible for two major BBC talent initiatives – ‘@North’ which engaged with digital indies, and the ‘Jesting’ programme which provided a route in to the BBC for comedians and writers.

Prior to being BBC Head of Multiplatform in Manchester and Birmingham, Mario spent several years as a television executive, working on entertainment, youth and arts output for Channel 4, Comedy Central, and the BBC. He was also part of one of the founding teams for the innovative arts show, The Late Show.

His brief at Corporation Pop will be to help develop our four screen strategy and build on our already strong portfolio of digital solutions for the Broadcast sector.

Needless to say we’re very excited about the addition of Mario to our team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help us to exploit the expertise we already have in developing applications for connected TVs and second screens. He will also be pivotal in helping us develop and sell new multiplatform content propositions.

“I’m looking forward to working with Corporation Pop, they are an exceptional team with great ideas and a passion for what they do as well as pride in the quality they deliver. Between us I know we’ll be able to develop new ideas which appeal to and inspire audiences and show our ability to innovate,” says Mario.
