Post-prod'n house taps new managing director

Post-production house Encore has tapped Joshua Touber as managing director of its Hollywood facility.

Touber will oversee the Hollywood-based company’s merger with Four Media Co., which was acquired in September. He will also head the company’s transition into commercial and feature work. Previously, Encore focused on television projects, such as “Ally McBeal,” “The X-Files” and “NYPD Blue.”

The appointment marks Touber’s second stint with Encore; from 1992-95, he served as the company’s general manager. He left to become a principal in Xymox Systems, a facility software provider, and in 1995 founded communications group Virtuosity, which developed the Wildfire automated telecommunications system.

“I am extremely pleased that Josh has returned to Encore,” said Larry Chernoff, prexy of the Four Media Co.’s Television Group. “His integrity, vision and drive will be invaluable assets for our company as the industry continues to adapt.”

Encore also operates offices in Santa Monica.
