Beach House Pictures hires Neal Moore to head up content business

Beach House Pictures (BHP), one of Asia’s largest indies has appointed Neal Moore (pictured) as head of content & business development. Moore will be replacing Jim Ribbans, who will be leaving the company after four years.

Headquartered in Singapore with offices in Beijing and Taipei, Moore will be involved in international projects with a focus on further growth in the Asia Pacific businesses for BHP.

Moore will be tasked to boost BHP’s growth in branded and scripted content, as well as strengthen its content partnerships with digital and agency players. He will also be in charge of developing BHP’s existing intellectual properties. Moore brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in TV, publishing, advertising and film in the UK, USA and Asia.

He joins BHP a year after selling his stake in Singaporean content marketing agency Click2View, which he co-founded in 2010.  Moore has spent the past year developing his own slate of original content, some of which will be brought into the Beach House stable.

Moore will be working with Donovan Chan, creative director and Jocelyn Little, managing director. Both Chan and Little are founders of BHP.

“We are sad to see Ribbans go after a very productive stint with Beach House. But very excited to welcome Moore to the family. Moore adds a fresh perspective and his many years of experience in content, sales and marketing to BHP’s growth plans, at a time of great disruption in our industry,” Little said.

"The media industry is undergoing unprecedented change with new players and models constantly emerging,” Moore said.

“However if we think strategically and act entrepreneurially we can capitalise on that flux and expand Beach House Pictures' world class reputation for factual content into the scripted and digital realms too," he added.
