STEVE MCINTYRE has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Scottish Screen.
MacIntyre, 46, has been Head of Production Development at Scottish Screen for three years and before that was Chief Executive of the London Film and Video Development Agency.
The appointment was announced by James Lee, Chairman of Scottish Screen. He said: "We conducted an intensive search for this job, for which there was strong competition and we interviewed a range of experienced and well-qualified candidates. It was clear that Steve was the best man for the job".
MacIntyre said: "This is an important time for the screen industries in Scotland. I am excited by the prospect of leading the team at Scottish Screen and shaping the agency's future. My immediate priority will be to develop Scottish Screen's response to the Scottish Executive review of public support for the screen industries. I share the board's enthusiasm and commitment to broadening our remit, particularly in expanding the scope of Scottish Screen to include the new media opportunities created by digital technology. It is essential that Scottish Screen stays ahead of the game. Digital technology will create new opportunities for Scotland and could transform the competitive position of some of our emerging production companies. Also, I am looking forward to working with the board to redefine Scottish Screen's strategy and to ensure that the agency's work is better understood and appreciated".
The appointment takes effect immediately. A new Head of Production will be recruited in the near future. (CD)
