Global production leadership team promotions at DNEG

Rupert Porter and Olly Money promoted to Managing Directors, VFX; Erika Burton becomes President, Global VFX Production

We’re delighted to announce that our current heads of production, Olly Money and Rupert Porter, have been promoted to the new positions of Managing Directors, VFX.


Olly (in the UK) and Rupert (in North America) will continue to manage DNEG’s ongoing VFX client relationships, providing assurance and continuity to our filmmaking partners while also working more closely with our clients in the early stages of production and collaborating with our Business Development team to bid for and develop new projects.

Alongside Olly and Rupert’s promotions, as part of the broader strengthening of our global leadership team, we’re also pleased to announce that Erika Burton will be taking the new title of President, Global VFX Production.

Joining us in May this year, Erika has already made a significant impact on our VFX business and will continue to work closely with Merzin Tavaria (President, Global Production and Operations) to further establish and strengthen our organisational vision, goals and objectives.

Our CEO Namit Malhotra said:

“As a company we’re building momentum not just as service providers but as partners, strategically aligning ourselves with our clients in order to deliver the most compelling and valuable content and services possible. As we seize on the global explosion in demand for top quality visual effects and animation, having the right people in place to enhance our client relationships is vital. My congratulations to Olly, Rupert and Erika in their new roles; all designed to allow us to forge and maintain even stronger client relationships and to set us up for future growth.”
