She also set up Sky’s work placement programme for disabled talent, Sky Breathrough, in an earlier role as production manager for Sky Originals.

Prior to joining Pulse in 2020, Gavin was Amazon Prime’s senior production executive for EU scripted originals.

She succeeds producer Alex Boden, who steps down as PGGB chair after four years.

PGGB chief executive Lyndsay Duthie said Gavin’s “extensive background in scripted production across European and global content gives her exceptional insight into the interests of our members”.

Duthie added: “Through her work, which has spanned both major and independent productions, she has had a long-standing passion for raising up new talent and improving diversity and inclusion in the film and TV workplace, principles that underpin all of PGGB’s priorities.”

Meanwhile, Gavin said: “The training, talent development and representation that PGGB consistently delivers to members has been vital throughout pivotal moments of the past four years; the pandemic, the bounce-back into record-breaking production levels and subsequent skills demand.

“As a voice for the UK's film and TV production workforce, in what is undoubtedly a challenging time, PGGB's role in the face of this changing industry landscape is more important than ever.”
