Eight Australia promotes Lib Kelly to EP role

Lib Headshot_FINAL.jpgAfter three years as senior producer at Eight, Lib Kelly (left) has taken on the role of executive producer, Australia. Kelly will work alongside managing director and executive producer, Katie Millington to further expand the business in Australia. The appointment coincides with the Eight rebrand (formerly 8com) and the launch of their new website www.eight.com.au.

Says Millington: Lib has been the backbone of our Sydney office since we moved to Surry Hills three years ago. She's that rare combination of experience, logic, creativity and humour. She's everything Eight is about and this new title is both well deserved and long overdue."
Says Kelly: "I'm thrilled to take on the EP role with Eight. I love and respect the brand and I value the company's commitment to providing an enjoyable production experience for everyone involved, from crew to agency and client. I'm excited to work with Katie and our directors to move our company forward into new areas, whilst keeping a strong foothold in the world of high end TVCs and content."

Eight has gone from strength to strength since Millington and Josh Frizzell partnered up with Mike Vanderfield four years ago. The company has successfully evolved to embrace the new market challenges with continued success in both Australia and New Zealand across all facets of the industry, from big budget epics to narrative films, content and activation. Between the appointment of Anna Kennedy to an EP role in NZ and Kelly's promotion to EP in Australia, the company is in safe hands. With plenty of new blood and a whole new face, the future has never been more exciting.
