ZOO Digital has appointed Norie Negishi, formerly of The Walt Disney Company, as the head of operations and business development in Asia.
Negishi will be charged with helping to grow ZOO Digital’s capacity in Asia following the expansion of its cloud dubbing services. Negishi’s role will involve working with dubbing directors, voice artists and potential partners to help ZOO’s clients access more talent and reach new audiences around the world. The latest appointment follows expansion in the Latin American and Middle Eastern markets in the last six months as ZOO continues to recruit leading dubbing talent. Negishi has 17 years of experience at The Walt Disney Company in the Asia Pacific.
Negishi said, “This is a team always looking for better ways of working. ZOO’s cloud dubbing service is the new cutting-edge technology that has already made a huge impact on the industry—and it certainly caught my eye. Dubbing directors and voice artists can work from anywhere in the world while content owners get access to more talent and choice. I’m thrilled to be joining ZOO Digital to shape the future of media localization.”
Gordon Doran, the president of ZOO Digital, commented, “It’s an exciting time as we extend our partnerships and services in Asia. We’re delighted to welcome on board some of the most experienced dubbing professionals in the industry like Norie.”
