Technology Firm Ionoco Sets Up US Office
Broadcast technology company ionoco is launching a permanent presence in the US. The new business will be headed by Simon Ingram, who is currently MD of ionoco. Working with US Head of Production, Holly Carter, he is currently overseeing the set up and operation of the US office, with a view to recruiting a local team imminently.
The decision to open up an office is in response to the number of US productions and pilots that ionoco is currently working on for American and international producers: “Ionoco Inc. (the US firm), supported by our team in the UK, will offer our US clients the same highly creative yet cost-effective solutions they have come to expect from us, but with the added advantage of a local hub with strong connections to the American broadcast community. We’ve enjoyed great success in the US, and establishing a permanent base there ensures we can continue to fulfil our clients’ creative technology needs.”
Ionoco’s services are called on by numerous global entertainment producers. Its US client list includes: FremantleMedia (Family Feud, Downfall, Million Dollar Password); Endemol USA (Million Dollar Money Drop, 1 vs. 100, 20 Q); Mark Burnett (Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader); and Zoo Productions (Family Game Night).
