Welcoming Tom Williams to DNEG


Welcome to DNEG, Tom!

We’re delighted to share that Tom Williams has joined our DNEG team as Managing Director, Episodic in London. In his new role, Tom will drive Episodic VFX services globally and support Episodic clients across DNEG and ReDefine, in partnership with the executive teams across both brands. He will work closely with Rohan Desai (Managing Director, ReDefine and DNEG VFX (Canada)) to expand this important area of our business.

Tom brings more than 25 years of industry experience to his new role at DNEG, including various management positions at Sky, Abbey Road Studios, and most recently MPC.

DNEG’s episodic team has been honored with several industry awards in recent years, including two Primetime Emmys® (Star Trek: Discovery and Chernobyl) and three Visual Effects Society Awards (for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and Foundation). The team has recently delivered acclaimed VFX work on major projects such as The Last of Us (HBO Max), Extrapolations (Apple TV+), Stranger Things (Season 4) (Netflix), and Citadel (Amazon Prime).

On joining DNEG, Tom said:
“This is an exciting time to be joining DNEG, as the company doubles-down on its ambitions in the episodic VFX space to cater to high demand for its industry-leading services. Over the last few years, DNEG has established itself as a destination for directors and showrunners who want to create truly spectacular visual experiences. As we explore how we can build on the amazing work that the DNEG Episodic teams are already doing around the world, I look forward to contributing and sharing my experience and insights, and to leading the team to even greater heights.”

Rohan Desai (Managing Director, ReDefine and DNEG VFX (Canada)) said:
“I am delighted to welcome Tom to DNEG, and I know that his years of leadership experience will prove tremendously beneficial as we continue to expand our focus on episodic VFX work. In recent years, we have had some great successes, delivering some truly inspirational work for our episodic clients across both DNEG and ReDefine, and I look forward to working closely with Tom to build upon these firm foundations to bring our clients the very best of what both DNEG and ReDefine have to offer.”

Welcome to the team, Tom!
