Manchester Creative Digital Assets Ltd has announced that former finance director, Rob Page, will become commercial director and Colin Johnson has been promoted to director of screens and facilities.
Page joined MCDA in 2016, having previously been finance director of Cheetham Bell JWT.
“We are entering a really exciting phase at both The Sharp Project and Space Studios as we work towards our further expansion and growth. I am passionate about Manchester and the creative, digital sector, and I am delighted to embark on this new role within the organisation,” he said.
Johnson has been involved with both operations since their inception, but will now be responsible for the management and business development of Space Studios. This will include overseeing the newly opened 30,000 sq ft stage and 60,000 sq ft of support space.
“With the recent expansion of the site and our continued work with international major production companies such as Tiger Aspect and Big Talk it’s a really exciting time for Space Studios Manchester,” he said.
MCDA has a public and private board, chaired by Susan Woodward, with Sir Richard Leese sitting on the board alongside non-executives from the private sector. The City Council is the company’s only shareholder.
