HOLLYWOOD — Light Iron, which specializes in workflows for content originated with file-based motion picture cameras, has hired Marc Vanocur. A 20-year industry veteran, he will serve in the newly-created position of chief operating officer. The appointment comes after Light Iron experienced a 50 percent growth in personnel in 2013.
Vanocur previously held executive roles at Technicolor, Todd-Soundelux, and Weddington Productions, overseeing business operations and navigating technological change. His top priorities in 2014 will be creating new strategic and financial partnerships for expanded service offerings.
“Light Iron has been at the forefront of the file-based evolution in picture,” remarks Vanocur. “Having led sound companies through the same transition, I look forward to advising the company on leveraging its tech acuity for continued growth. At a time when other post houses were contracting, Light Iron had significant expansion. The post industry is going to experience continued consolidation that will close more companies, but Light Iron is poised to take on new markets, opportunities and challenges.”
“Bringing Marc to Light Iron is an investment in our executive leadership,” says CEO Michael Cioni. “Marc’s experience leading post companies through growth and technological change is going to be critical as the industry continues to move in new directions.”
