Channel 4 creative director Tom Tagholm to depart
Channel 4’s network creative director Tom Tagholm is set to leave his position as head of 4creative after 11 years it has been announced.
Tagholm, who was part of the original 4creative team in 2011, is to concentrate on developing film and commercial projects, and is represented by Blink for commercials and films.
During his time he has worked on promotional campaigns for This is England 86, The Big Food Fight, Shamless and picked up a D&AD award for a campaign to promote Alan Carr ‘Chatty Man’.
Dan Brooke, director of marketing and communications, commented: “Tom is a creative titan and has been behind some of Channel 4’s best advertising and branding for more than a decade. We are gutted to see him go, but understand that sometimes a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. We wish him all the success in the world as he follows his film-making passions and hope we’ll be able to work closely with him in the future.”
Tagholm added:“4Creative is a magic place and I’m incredibly proud of the work we have done together. There is nowhere else like it in town and I will miss it like hell. But I have some other projects and now is the right time to give them some love and attention.”
