Fleur Willcox-Jones

Fleur is Head of Production at Crows Nest Films, adroit and quick-witted she's up for adventure.

Fleur grabbed a BA Hons in French Studies with a specialism in French Film and Theatre from the University of Birmingham including an enlightening year at Université Lumière in Lyon, France.  After graduation she flirted with internet startup with LVMH before landing a temp job at HIT Entertainment, where she galvanised her accounting skills.  Keen to accessorise with more than a calculator she started eyeing up the rest of the media industry.  Like a freshly released powder monkey she ran into the warm arms of Discovery Home & Leisure, aka, the best channel ever on British television.  Many happy years of hopping around Discovery Channel ensued and a graduation from Channel Assistant through the executive ranks sprung her out of the Cannes bunker and off to the glamorous world of programme development and production.  The US beckoned, the Costa Del Sol called and many rich concepts and friendships were nurtured at The Wolsely, on broken down trains and snowy beaches.  Until one day, in Bear Grylls' kitchen, Fleur was headhunted by Carney James Turner.

She has a healthy handful of BBC courses tucked under her belt along with nearly 2 decades of experience in media productions around the globe.  A battle-scarred crew member since 2009 Fleur is occasionally seconded to networks and creative agencies in London, where she delights in visiting Mary Poppins-style before alighting back to the Peaks.
