RTR restructures exec team

Former CEO Kit Redmond moves to executive chair and president, while Jenna Keane and Toni Miceli have been promoted to C-suite roles.

Kit Redmond picRTR Media has upped two of its executives, Jenna Keane and Toni Miceli, to C-suite roles at the Toronto-based prodco.

Miceli, who joined RTR in 2012 as head of production was upped to VP of production in 2016. She’s now been promoted to CEO and a partner of the company.

Kit Redmond (pictured), co-founder and former CEO of the company, will now oversee the company as executive chair and president. She will remain the majority and controlling shareholder at RTR, according to a press release, and focus on strategic planning, finance and talent.

Meanwhile, Keane, who most recently held the role of VP of content and development, has been named a partner and chief creative officer. In the role, she will spearhead RTR’s content development and production slate and work alongside Lindsey Weidhorn, president of New York-based prodco 547 Barnard, with which RTR has a development and production partnership.

Redmond co-founded the production company with Debbie Travis and Hans Rosenstein in 2003. In 2008, Redmond bought out her partners to become the sole owner of the company.

“Debbie and Hans mentored me and guided me as I learned how to run a company. I am now passing on that privilege with Jenna and Toni, two strong, smart and capable women, to ensure that RTR has a solid succession and growth plan for the future. The additions and new organizational structure will also allow me to focus on strategy for the future in a climate where change is the norm,” said Redmond in a statement.

RTR produces a number of series for Scripps in the U.S., including Home Town, Flip or Flop Fort Worth and Hidden Potential for HGTV (U.S.). The prodco has also previously produced Disrupting Design (CBC), Income Property: On Vacation (HGTV Canada) and Lost & Sold (Slice). In 2016 it teamed with Sara Lynn Cauchon, the creator and host of YouTube channel The Domestic Geek, to form Inspired Entertainment.
