Park Village recruits Noble as its new MD with brief to revamp

The production company Park Village has hired the freelance producer Freya Noble to be its new managing director, with a brief to restructure the company and to revamp its facilities.

Noble replaces the former Park Village managing director, David Seers, who is returning to a full-time producer's role at the company.

Noble began her career working as a producer for Tony Scott at RSA and has worked on a freelance basis for Joy Films, as well as for a number of top 20 agencies, including Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Mother. She has produced ads for One2One, Martini, Pot Noodle, Super Noodles and Guinness during various freelance spells.

Her first task will be to boost Park Village's roster of directors, which includes the co-founder Roger Woodburn, who won a D&AD black Pencil for his "Dambusters spot for Carling.

Noble is also planning to refurbish the company's London premises, including its in-house studio, viewing theatre and editing facilities.

The Park Village co-founder Peter Webb said of the appointment: "Excellent management skills, a quiet determination and ferocious attention to detail marks Freya as a great acquisition for us."

Noble added: "Park Village has been turning out prize-winning films for 25 years, and we plan to maximise this legacy."

Park Village's other directors include Charlie Stebbings and Mick Rudman.
