The Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition has named Emily Ng as its new chief financial officer, effective this month. Ng succeeds John Nohelty, who is retiring, following more than a decade of dedicated service to DCDC as CFO.
Ng brings with her an extensive background spanning more than 20 years in the technology, media, and telecommunications industries. She began at Warner Music in London, followed by several key roles including finance manager at Arts Alliance Media, where she was instrumental in facilitating their virtual print fee business, and later as chief strategy officer. She was also involved in film fund investments at Ingenious Media for blockbusters like Night at the Museum and Avatar.
In 2015, Ng took the role of head of strategy: business development & product at Motion Picture Solutions as they integrated their key delivery message generation system with the Hollywood studio’s film booking systems. More recently, she was a part of the financial advisory team at Deloitte in London, focusing on transaction services in the technology, media, and telecom sector. She holds a Master of Arts in documentary film from the University of Arts, London, and a BSc. in Economics from the London School of Economics. Ng has been a Global Chartered Management Accountant since 2006.
“Our team is thrilled to welcome Emily as her vast experience in finance and media makes her an exceptional addition to DCDC,” said DCDC CEO Howard Kiedaisch. “Having worked with her previously for over 10 years, I look forward to her valuable support as we continue to evolve and serve the cinema community.”
“I am very excited to join DCDC, a unique industry entity, owned by both distribution and exhibition,” Ng said. “It affords us the opportunity to make a significant collaborative contribution to the business. The innovation of the delivery model will be greatly increasing over the coming years as new technology evolves, and I’m pleased to be able to play a role in these changes to come.”
