Pinewood Studios Group has hired Yu-Fai Suen as Managing Director of Pinewood Pictures administering Pinewood’s own investments and those on behalf of its client funds.
Robert Norris will also take up a new position as Senior Vice President within the company.

Prior to joining Pinewood, Suen was Chief Operating Officer at Rocket Pictures. Before that Suen held senior roles at Aramid Capital Partners and Momentum Pictures and was involved in the film financing of District 9, Blue Valentine and Bronson amongst others, as well as arranging a number of Studio slate deals and corporate media transactions.
Ivan Dunleavy, Chief Executive, Pinewood Group plc said “The Pinewood Group has been iconic in the creative industries for over 80 years. Pinewood Pictures has benefitted in the last year from growing interest in our offer to independent film and television producers and our ability to introduce funding from our relationship with the Welsh Government and Isle of Man Government. Yu-Fai will be working with the existing Pinewood Pictures team successfully driven by Robert Norris to extend our offer to the wider production community and to further raise the funds accessible by Pinewood Pictures to grow its media investment portfolio.”
Yu-Fai Suen added: “It is a privilege to join a company like Pinewood, home to some of the most iconic films in cinema history and I look forward to the opportunity to grow the Pinewood Pictures brand and its offering and to help increase shareholder value to Pinewood and its financing partners.”
Pinewood Pictures sits alongside Pinewood’s recently announced joint venture, Pinewood Television, to develop and finance long form television drama.
