London-based Endemol Shine U.K. has announced the appointment of three new digital roles for its MCN, ChannelFlip.

Filling the role of creative director is Endemol Shine U.K. executive producer Jules Fuller. As creative director, Fuller will serve in a leadership role overseeing all of ChannelFlip’s creative decisions. Fuller also previously worked as Endemol’s head of special projects.

Also on board is Caroline Reik, current director of branded content with Endemol Shine U.K. Reik will now take on additional duties overseeing digital and linear content with ChannelFlip. Current creative producer with ChannelFlip Riyad Barmania has been promoted to content director.

The changes come as ChannelFlip’s current creative director Jamie Lennox and commercial director Matt Rook are expected to step down from the company this summer.

Lennox and Rook have been with ChannelFlip since 2007 and 2010, respectively.

“After a collective 13 years at ChannelFlip…now is the right time for us to start a new venture of our own,” said Lennox and Rook in a statement. According to Endemol, Lennox and Rook’s new venture will be announced at a later date.

ChannelFlip currently boasts more than 20 million subscribers across its 180 digital channels, working with U.K.-based talent such as comedian David Mitchell and Top Gear host Richard Hammond (pictured). It’s also behind the recently-announced Skip Festival, a YouTube creator festival coming to London in September.
