Jellyfish Pictures has promoted Matthew Bristowe to managing director and Sarah Tanner to the post of director of operations.
In his new role, Bristowe, who joined Jellyfish in 2019 as director of operations, will be tasked with the day-to-day management of the company as well as growing revenue across Jellyfish’s VFX, art department and feature animation businesses. Tanner, who has led Jellyfish’s HR and talent strategy as HR director over the past three years, will now oversee all operations and resources in addition to her HR responsibilities. They will both report to Phil Dobree, Jellyfish founder and CEO.
To support Bristowe and Tanner in their roles, Jellyfish has hired Martin Weaver as the new head of infrastructure to oversee Jellyfish’s ongoing drive for technical excellence and innovation in virtual tech and global working. The company also appointed Eva Kilikitas as its new HR manager.
Dobree said: “I am very proud to have a first-class leadership team around me, and the new roles given to Sarah and Matthew are in recognition of the stellar work they have been doing over the past year. I have full confidence in their ability to work with me and the leadership team to deliver the next stage of our growth strategy. They, and our entire management and leadership team, embody our company values, which are enabling our talent to stay at the top of the animation and VFX business. This roster of new appointments signifies the next step in the Jellyfish journey and the commitment to our future growth.”
