The ‘Who is Wilson Worldwide?’ series is a way of letting you get to know exactly who we are, whether you are a follower of what we do, someone looking to get to know a bit more about the industry, or just someone who happened to stumble upon us. The company is small in number but has a huge passion for creating the best possible content for your TV, and over the next few weeks you will get to know the people behind the ideas, when we ask them a little bit about themselves.
This week we meet Chloe Zhou. Everyone needs a Chloe in their office/ lives. Chloe is extremely hard working and incredibly kind plus her quick wit and timing is sensational. Chloe is always working on developing projects, and is always there for advice and support. In her spare time, Chloe also helps her friends create short films and ideas! We asked Chloe to answer a few questions about herself, so we could get to know all about her!
