Codex has hired long-time post industry veteran Brian Gaffney at its VP of business development. He is based at Codex’s LA office and heads up Codex’s business development efforts across the Americas, Australia and New Zealand.
Gaffney comes to 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. Gaffney was then named VP 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 of the Discreet product line in the Americas.
“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,” explains Marc Dando, managing director of Codex.
