Andrea JacksonCEO at Magnify Media
Andrea Jackson has been a formats and distribution specialist for nearly 20 years. Starting out at formats pioneer, Action Time (now part of ITV Global), she went on to set up a new format sales business at Mentorn Barraclough Carey, building the Robot Wars brand into a global hit.
In 2000, Andrea launched production and distribution business, Zeal Entertainment. With international hits such as Pepsi Chart Show and The Singing Bee, which was licensed for local production in 35 territories around the globe, Zeal rapidly built a reputation as a creative and innovative business.
In 2006, Andrea sold Zeal to DRG and then became DRG's Managing Director, Acquisitions & Formats, working with titles such as The Farm, Don't Tell the Bride, 15 to 1 and Doc Martin. In 2015, Andrea decided it was time to use her experience, contacts and vision to build her own entrepreneurial business and launched Magnify Media.
Andrea is proud to serve on the board of FRAPA.
Andrea is also a senior-level yoga teacher and practitioner. She lives in the Sussex countryside with her husband and children. She loves being outdoors and plans to learn how to garden if she ever has enough time.
