Kevin Swanepoel announced as new chief of The One Club

The One Club has named Kevin Swanepoel, its former president, as chief executive officer (CEO).

The club, based in New York, is a non-profit that recognizes outstanding creative work.

Swanepoel will be replacing Mary Warlick, who will become the president of A&C Film Distribution.

"The One Club would not be where it is today, and I would not be where I am now, if it weren't for Mary's leadership over these many years," said Swanepoel. "It has been an absolute pleasure and I am glad she now has the chance to fully pursue her passion for creating documentaries. I am grateful for this opportunity and I am confident that with the team we have built, The One Club will continue to set the standard in our industry in more and more places around the world."

The One Club will host Creative Week in New York early next month.
