LONGSTANDING MANAGEMENT TEAM TO ACQUIRE CENTRE SCREEN FROM FOUNDERS
We’re delighted to announce exciting developments here at Centre Screen. As part of our long-term strategy to preserve the company’s creative standards and quality of service, a management buyout has been agreed with longstanding employees and Company Directors Hayley Walsh, Lisa O’Neill and Finance Director Trevor Hayes. All three of them have been an integral part of Centre Screen for many years and have been working together most recently as the core leadership team of our studios in Manchester and London.
Founders Dave Postlethwaite and Paul Kucharski will continue to work very closely with Hayley, Lisa and Trevor to ensure that the values and culture instilled when they founded Centre Screen in 1986 will remain at the company’s heart. They’re delighted that the business is moving forward with a new generation of leaders who know the business, staff and clients so well and who are perfectly placed to build on the longstanding reputation Centre Screen has as one of the world’s leading producers of digital media and audio visual communication.
Founded over 30 years ago, Centre Screen has seen its work featured in locations including the Sydney Tower Australia, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, the Tower of London, The National Museum of Oman, Stonehenge Visitors Centre and, opening soon, the House of European History in Brussels. The management buyout, as Dave Postlethwaite explains, will preserve the ethos of creative excellence and professionalism behind these successes. “The exciting thing for me is that Centre Screen will remain a private independent business answerable only to its staff and clients – a creative force that remains energised and focused on serving its clients in an intensely personalised and focused way.”
