The Appointment Group launches TAG Global Film and Media

The Appointment Group (TAG) has today announced the creation of its latest division, The Appointment Group Global Film and Media (TAG Global Film and Media), to focus and best support its rapidly increasing media client-base. The brand has been created on the heels of its latest global office which opened in Atlanta at the beginning of the year. This was a strategic decision to focus on the city’s burgeoning Film and Media market. The division will be present in all of the TAG offices worldwide, with an emphasis on London, New York Los Angeles and Atlanta.

TAG’s move into the world of film and media has come about almost exclusively due to the reputation it has built up working for over 25 years with the music touring industry. By managing the travel and accommodation logistics of some of the highest profile artists in the world and the complexities involved, TAG has become a natural home for media and film business.

To drive the new division forward TAG has created a management team which brings with it a wealth of knowledge and experience in managing travel for this unique industry. Jodie Edwards-Locke (Managing Director) who in her nine years with the company has risen from Junior Travel Consultant to Board Director will head up the division. She will be supported by Michael Dovey and Rhys Thomas.

Michael who has been involved in the travel requirements for a variety of large and small scale productions for the last 20 years will be responsible for Operations. Rhys (an award-winning Film Producer himself) will manage the Business Development and Client Relations aspect of the brand.

Jodie Edwards-Locke comments: “I’m delighted to be launching this dedicated division. It’s an exciting industry to be involved in and with the calibre of team we have in place this is a fantastic opportunity to expand on our niche Film & Media client-base.

Joint Chairman and CEO of The Appointment Group John Gianquitto adds: “The launch of TAG Global Film and Media demonstrates our ongoing commitment to strengthen and continue TAG’s success story. The move to create a dedicated division is a natural progression for us, having looked after many Film & Media clients along with Touring Artists worldwide since 1988.
