Gem Pinkney, Publicity Manager, UKTV

Gem is the Publicity Manager across Dave, Gold, Alibi and W at award-winning broadcaster, UKTV. Having started at Emmerdale, Gem then moved to Hollyoaks before overseeing the publicity on some of the biggest UKTV shows, including original commissions like Taskmaster and Flack, alongside a host of US acquisitions.

Gem puts the ‘PR’ into ‘PRofessional’ and her organisation and talent management skills are appreciated by her colleagues just as much as her infectious laugh. A television junkie, she’ll tell you her favourite ever programme is The West Wing, but really it’s Grey’s Anatomy.
