Duane Hatherly has announced his departure from Foxtel where he was the long time director of production.
Foxtel’s executive director of television Brian Walsh told staff yesterday:
“I completely understand Duane’s position and as difficult as this has been to accept, acknowledge that this is the right time for him to spread his wings.
“It would be hard to find anyone who has demonstrated as much as loyalty and commitment to Foxtel as Duane. He joined the company 22 years ago as a graphics designer, straight off the plane from Toronto and made his way up the ladder in promos, then administration, channel and genre management, including head of Lifestyle and finally as our director of production.
“I am personally indebted to Duane for his unwavering loyalty, reliability and support over all these years. In every respect, he has been a pillar of support to me and I will be forever grateful.”
