Fresh from Seven Studios in Sydney, Kylie Munnich will return to her home state to head SQ.
Kylie has extensive experience from across various elements of the screen sector including serving as the Director of Drama & Comedy at Sky Vision, and Senior Vice President UK, Ireland & Africa at Sony Pictures Television International and a Sales Director at MGM International Television.
Kylie is thrilled to have the opportunity to lead SQ in an exciting period of growth.
“I am eager to leverage our State’s strong track record and continue to invest in local stories for global audiences, attract productions and cement our reputation as a screen production hub,” said Kylie.
Linda Lavarch, chair of SQ’s board welcomed Kylie’s appointment and the 25 years of expertise in international screen distribution and development that Kylie will bring to SQ.
“Following the departure of our long-serving Screen Queensland CEO Tracey Vieira in August, it was important an experienced hand took the reins to keep Queensland’s screen industry on a course of opportunity and prosperity,” said Linda.
“Kylie’s extensive experience abroad will serve the State well as we work to secure the biggest and best international blockbusters, while continuing to develop diverse homegrown content with global appeal.”
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Acting CEO Jo Dillon. Jo has done a fantastic job leading the team seamlessly through the interim period.”
Kylie will commence as CEO on 16 October 2019.
