Former Screen Queensland chief creative officer Jo Dillon has joined the newly-established Global City Group as its inaugural CEO, with the appointment announced alongside the company’s acquisition of Every Cloud Productions.
Launched earlier this year, the Queensland-based business has an acquisitions focus, investing in talent and companies across film and television, games, tech, media, and communications.
As part of her new role, Dillon will serve as chair of Every Cloud Productions, working alongside CEO Drew Grove on its slate, which includes Adele Vuko’s upcoming holiday comedy feature, Stan’s Christmas Ransom.
Head of content Mike Jones and finance director Shraddha Gatiya also became partners in the venture. The current structure will continue under Global City Group.
Grove said his team was excited to be part of the business and welcomed the opportunity to work with Dillon.
“This is an exciting new chapter in our growth, and we look forward to growing our business and our production slate, both domestically and internationally, as part of an ambitious new network of creative industries businesses,” he said.
