Dave Gibson Appointed NZFC Chief Executive

Veteran producer steps up from Jan 2014

SINGAPORE — Producer, Dave Gibson has been appointed as the chief executive of the New Zealand Film Commission.

He replaces Graeme Mason, who recently departed for Australia, and will start the new job from Jan 2014.

The five year appointment was announced Tuesday by Patsy Reddy, chair of NZFC, New Zealand’s primary film support agency.

Gibson will sell his shares in The Gibson Group, the film and TV production that company he founded. He was previously a director of the NZFC in the 1990s. In 2012 he was made an ‘Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit’ (pictured, left) for services to the film and television industry. 

TV shows produced at Gibson Group include “Skitz,” “The Strip,” and “Front Seat.” Gibson Group films include “The Silent One,” “The Irrefutable Truth about Demons” and “Fresh Meat.”

“Dave Gibson is one of New Zealand’s most experienced film and television producers and we are delighted to have secured his services for this important leadership role” said Reddy in a prepared statement. “He has a depth and breadth of knowledge and experience of the New Zealand industry across both film and television which we see as invaluable for the NZFC, particularly as we seek to encourage the development of sustainable businesses with stronger international reach.”
