While the two company co-founders will continue in advisory roles, Head of Business Affairs Drew Grove has been appointed as CEO, with Mike Jones as Head of Content and Shraddha Gatiya as Finance Director.

This changing of the guard comes as Every Cloud marks the 10th anniversary of the international hit series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries which first hit our screens in 2012. The company is also nominated for best drama series for Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries and best Telemovie or Miniseries Production of the Year for A Sunburnt Christmas at the Screen Producers Australia awards, and received four 2021 AACTA nominations for their productions A Sunburnt Christmas and Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries.

Every Cloud Co-Founder, Fiona Eagger, said: “Deb and I are thrilled to be handing over the reins to our trusted team who have been such an important part of the company’s success.  Succession planning is important and we are excited to infuse our beloved company with new energy and vitality as we devolve our responsibilities to an advisory capacity, whilst retaining rights and roles in our key properties.”

Every Cloud Co-Founder, Deb Cox, said: “As a company we’ve always sought to increase female representation on screen as well as behind the camera and to create screen career opportunities in regional communities. We think it’s equally important to support new talent to step into leadership roles and to provide mentoring and business opportunities to the next generation of screen creatives. It’s exciting to know that Every Cloud will continue in the very capable hands of Drew, Mike and Shraddha.”

“As well as our colleagues in the company, we’ve had the good fortune to work with so with great people in our industry and we thank them all for their support, collaboration and brilliance. We’d particularly like to thank and acknowledge Film Victoria, Screen NSW and Screen Australia, as well the other State funding agencies, who do so much to foster and support companies such as ours,” Fiona says.

Drew Grove, Every Cloud’s new CEO, said: “It’s an exciting time for screen production in Australia and Mike, Shraddha and I – with Deb and Fiona’s support – will take advantage of expanding market opportunities, while continuing to further exploit the company’s existing and very successful suite of brands including both Miss Fisher and Ms Fisher series. We have an exciting development slate and are looking forward to seeing these terrific projects on screen.”

The company will continue to operate from its headquarters in Stephen Street, Yarraville.
