After 17 years with the company MD Martin Cayzer has decided to leave Panavision Asia Pacific. Cayzer’s departure sees a new management structure take the helm with current Marketing Director Paul Jackson becoming Head of Rentals and Finance Director Brett Rubin taking additional responsibility for John Barry sales.
Cayzer said, “After 17 years it’s time for me to move on to fresh challenges. I’m delighted to say that Panavision Asia Pacific is in the best shape it’s been in for some time having secured features like Fury Road, I, Frankenstein, The Railway Man, The Sapphires and The Great Gatsby as well as TV series such as Spartacus and Winners and Losers. It’s obviously a significant decision on my part but I leave happy in the knowledge that Panavision is in a good place moving forward with Paul and his 13 years experience with the company and Brett with his solid financial background, without question the best two people to take the helm.”
In his time at Panavision Cayzer has worked closely with both Jackson and Rubin on many major projects including some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest movie and TV productions, moving the organisation’s HQ and the recent sale of Panalux to Fox Studios Australia. He was also a board member and Chairman of Ausfilm.
Paul Jackson said, “Obviously everyone at Panavision is sad to see Martin go. He has made an incredible contribution to the company over the last 17 years and we all wish him well with his future endeavours. That said, he leaves us with a healthy organisation and as a result, the rest of 2012 is looking very busy indeed. We are very optimistic for the future and I am certainly looking forward to help grow the rentals side of Panavision further.”
Brett Rubin added, “Martin has been a great asset to Panavision and I am very much looking forward to building on the great platform he has helped create for John Barry in the market. Our brand and offering are stronger than ever, as is our commitment to our customers.”
