Last month content production house JOE Media announced the appointment of Samuel Regan-Assante as its new UK CEO.

He also discusses how media is changing in the shadow of major events and why audiences now want much more from their content than simply entertainment.
He also talks about the challenges of getting into the role in the midst of a global lockdown and who he is inspired by.

Before taking the helm at JOE Media, Samuel Regan-Asante, was one of the co-founders of Iconic Labs, now listed on the London Stock exchange, and he spent five years at popular content factory UNILAD.
