WIFT Member Appointed to Film NZ Board

Posted Tuesday 20 Dec 2011

WIFT NZ Member Catherine Madigan was one of three new appointments to the Film NZ Board announched last week. The other two were TelstraClear CEO Dr Allan Freeth, and actor Miranda Harcourt.

Board Chairman Julian Grimmond says the appointments continue the longstanding tradition of Film New Zealand attracting senior and respected industry figures to its board.

"Miranda, Allan and Catherine are at the top of their fields in the creative and business sectors and are stellar appointments to our board. The two film appointments, Miranda Harcourt and Catherine Madigan, have in-depth experience with international film production, and Allan Freeth brings enormous commercial and global expertise, previously leading Wrightson and now as the head of an innovative telecommunications company. Attracting board directors with this diversity, calibre of skills and experience is crucial to the rapidly expanding New Zealand screen industry, and testimony to the standing the screen industry has in the economy," says Julian Grimmond.
