Digital content agency and media network Little Dot Studios has appointed Zara Gregory to the newly created role of Director of Operations.
Little Dot Studios has undergone a period of accelerated growth over the past 18 months as it expands its activities worldwide – hiring a new senior management team in the US, acquiring new businesses such as History Hit and WING, launching a new consumer brands division, and winning a significant number of new contracts with major global clients. The company expects to increase this growth substantially over the next three to five years.
Reporting to COO Kevin Gibbons, Gregory will work with the leadership team to develop and implement an overall operational strategy for the business. She will be responsible for designing and driving an operational change agenda that supports long-term sustainable growth across the company.
Gregory brings more than two decades of media industry experience to Little Dot Studios, joining the company from Sky where over the last five years as Group Head of Transformation she was responsible for delivering complex transformation programs and embedding cultural change across its Content Operations arm and Sky News division. Prior to Sky, she was at the BBC where she held a number of key operational roles across TV and Production, including leading the transition of BBC Three from a linear to online proposition, working with senior creatives and business stakeholders from across BBC to re-invent it successfully as an on-demand brand.

Zara’s calibre and experience at major media brands makes her the ideal person to transform our operations and deliver significant, sustainable growth across the company, while also meeting our ambitious environmental and inclusivity commitments.
