London based VFX specialist BlueBolt has expanded its management team with the addition of Jonathan Barson to a newly created role of Chief Operating Officer. 

In the role Barson will oversee business operations and manage day to day operations.

Barson was the fourth employee of software giant, The Foundry, where he spent fourteen years guiding the business through three changes of ownership and growing the company to 145 people with revenues of £15m. He then went on to build a management structure to oversee the sales, marketing and customer support function at Arnold developers, Solid Angle. He joins BlueBolt after 3 years at SBG Sports Software.

BlueBolt’s recent credits include ‘Johnny English 3’, ‘Mary Queen of Scots’, ‘Peaky Blinders’ & ‘Taboo’.

CEO and co-founder Lucy Ainsworth-Taylor said, "We founded BlueBolt 10 years ago and our work over the years has significantly scaled up.  We have increased our management team in line with this and Jonathan’s expertise is perfectly placed to help nurture our close knit team’.
