Collier collars AHL managing director

Position oversees Greater Union circuit

International exhib/hotel and leisure operator Amalgamated Holdings has tapped Jim Collier as managing director of AHL Entertainment, overseeing its Greater Union circuit in Oz and its cinemas in the Middle East.

In his new Sydney-based role, Collier will take on joint responsibility with AHL topper David Seargeant and with director of strategic investments Hans Eberstaller for the 50% stake in German exhib Kieft & Kieft and its one-third interest in a Dutch multiplex.

Aussie-born Collier, who signs on Sept 1, has spent six years as chief exec of New Zealand-based Restaurant Brands, which holds the Kiwi franchises for Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut and Starbucks.

AHL has restructured its exhib operations after the retirement of longtime Greater Union chief Richard Parton.
