Screen Australia Appoints Nicholas Moore as Chairman

Nicholas Moore has been appointed as the new chairman of the board of Screen Australia, the federal film support organization.

Attorney General George Brandis described Moore as “a distinguished Australian with extensive financial and business management credentials.”

Moore, who receives a three-year term, has been group managing director and CEO of banking and investment firm Macquarie Group Limited since 2008.

“He will help Screen Australia ensure Australian production companies achieve commercial success while continuing to engage audiences both here and abroad,” Brandis said.

“Australian screen production businesses understand the need to be nimble, entrepreneurial and innovative. With an increased focus on international engagement, the sector is looking harder than ever at investment opportunities and business partnerships. It’s timely that Mr. Moore will bring his considerable expertise in the corporate sector to his new role,” said trade group Screen Producers Australia in a written reaction.

The Screen Australia post has been vacant for nine months since the departure of Glen Boreham in June at the end of his term. Deanne Weir was acting chair. Graeme Mason has been its CEO since November 2013.
