Digital Domain Names Cliff Plumer CEO, Promotes Kevin Weston to CFO

L.A.-based digital production studio Digital Domain has named Cliff Plumer as its new CEO, and promoted Kevin Weston to CFO. Former CEO Mark Miller remains company president.

The appointments reflect Digital Domain’s focus on its core business – visual effects for feature films and commercial production, and strategic development of its efforts in games and animation.

Plumer, responsible for Digital Domain’s overall strategy and all aspects of its business, joined the company in 2006 as chief technology officer following a ten-year tenure with ILM and Lucasfilm. He has more than twenty years of experience in digital entertainment and media technology.

CFO Kevin Weston oversees finance and accounting. He joined Digital Domain in 2008 as general manager, Games. He is a former LucasArts VP, the previous CFO and senior vice president at Eidos Interactive Inc., US, held senior roles in KPMG’s London Entertainment practice, and has consulted for leading games and entertainment companies. In addition to his CFO duties Weston will work with Plumer to develop the company’s long-term expansion into the games market.

As president, Miller is driving the company’s feature film visual effects business. Ed Ulbrich, president, Commercials Division and executive VP of Production, continues to oversee its advertising business and executive produce key feature film projects.

Director Michael Bay, co-chair of Digital Domain’s board of directors said, “Digital Domain has always delivered impressive work, but with Cliff and Mark at the helm, our company is certain to grow as a frontrunner among the best in the visual effects industry. Our goal is not only to produce cutting-edge effects but to create an atmosphere where the best and the brightest come to develop their talents, design innovative techniques and craft ground-breaking effects for every one of our entertainment and advertising projects.”
