Codex has named industry veteran, Brian Gaffney, as vice president business development. Gaffney has many years of digital production experience, and is well known in production and post-production circles around the motion picture and broadcast industries. He will be based at Codex’s LA office and will head up Codex’s business development efforts across the US, the Americas and Australia/New Zealand.
Gaffney has joined Codex from Technicolor, where he was product manager for Technicolor’s Advanced Production Technology Group in development of cloud-based workflows. He joined Technicolor in 2006 when his company, Creative Bridge, a provider of on-set digital lab services, was acquired, with Gaffney becoming the vice president of Technicolor’s On Location Services.
With Technicolor/Creative Bridge, he worked on over 100 projects using the DP Lights on-set color correction system, including Iron Man 3, where he worked alongside cinematographer John Toll ASC. Earlier in his career Gaffney worked at Turbo Squid, MTI Film and Autodesk, where he was responsible for sales for the Americas of the Discreet product line, at a time when the company reached its pinnacle of success.
Marc Dando, managing director of Codex, said, “Brian has deep roots in both VFX and on-location services. This combination, along with his recent experience in cloud-based services, makes him ideal for this new position at Codex, which we’ve created to support the continued expansion of our product line.”
“I think we are at a pivotal point for the production and post production industries,” added Gaffney, “I’ve watched Codex develop into an industry leader and have even been a customer of theirs. There are so many places where they add value and I’m excited to be a part of the team and expanding business.”
