Film Finances Australasia (FFA) managing director Anni Browning has announced that Dan Read has been appointed to the new position of CEO.
“Dan will take on more of the day-to-day management of the company, which will be a great support to me at time when we are busier than ever in Australia and New Zealand,” Browning said. “Dan has been with the company for nearly five years and brings incredible attention to detail and a great finance acumen to the role.”
