Norma brings twenty years of television production experience to her role as COO. Having come fresh from Channel 4’s Indie Growth Fund as the Senior Portfolio Manager, Norma now works closely with True North’s Creative Directors to steer the company through its next phase of growth.
Before Channel 4, Norma was Finance Director at international television production company, Optomen Television, where she helped grow the business and sell it to All3Media. Her career in the UK began at Fremantlemedia in 2000 (then Talkback Productions) and she has since continued to positively impact and grow companies she has worked with.
And here’s a quick chat with Norma:
When did you join True North?
What other shows are particularly proud of that you have worked on at True North and elsewhere? If this is your first job in TV – tell us a little bit about any achievements?
I get involved in all True North’s shows so it’s impossible for me to pick a favourite! During my career I’ve been involved in a wide range of content from Kitchen Nightmares (C4), Great British Menu (BBC), Hotel Hell (Fox) at Ottoman through to The Apprentice (BBC), Property Ladder (C4) at Talkback.
Anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I am originally from South Africa and I am a CIMA qualified accountant.
