Media company Carlton is recruiting a new controller of legal & business affairs, strategy & development to its production division.
Steve Lazarus, currently director of business affairs at WEA Records, is joining as part of the company's three-year plan to double its output.
Lazarus says he is moving because of the personal challenges caused by the convergence of all forms of entertainment under the guise of new media.
He says: "There's definitely a convergence of all media going on, with everything being thrown into the new media melting pot. Carlton has some exciting opportunities facing it in the digital revolution. It is a leading player in the TV industry, and it's at the forefront of new media."
Lazarus will work closely with the managing director as part of a close-knit team designed to help meet the new targets.
Lazarus says: "It's a growing business, and they've got a stated aim of doubling the output. As a result of the increasing activities that will be going on in the team they decided that they needed a lawyer to assist in all the deals, which is exactly what I'll be doing."
Waheed Alli, managing director of Carlton's production division and head of Planet 24 productions, first met Lazarus when producing The Word for Channel 4.
