Post house Splice has promoted Richard Folley to the newly-created position of Managing Director.

Splice co-founders Duncan Western and Damian Dolniak have made the move to position Richard as Managing Director and create the new role at Splice in response to the company’s growth.

Duncan Western said “Richard’s fantastic knowledge of post production along with his history of management makes him a perfect fit for the Managing Director role and for Splice overall. His vision of the future of the company is in line with ours.”

Previously at The Farm, Folley joined Splice in 2018 as Commercial & Post Director. His 20 year career in post production spans stints at Sky, The Farm and Fifty Fifty and in his early years in the industry he gained experience in production, agency and reseller areas.

Damian Dolniak commented “Richard has excellent expertise in all areas of post production and especially in emerging technology and modern workflows. We are seeing many productions coming through in 2021 that require in depth knowledge, he has vision and imagination and an ability to think laterally.”

Richard Folley said “I couldn’t be more delighted. The team at Splice is second to none, each and every one a huge asset and over the last few years I’ve become part of a group of people with great talent, endeavour, technical ability and appetite delivering some wonderful content to air for our clients and I’m very proud to be part of that and humbled to be asked to lead them in their continued success.’

Duncan Western added “It is perfect timing for Richard to take on this role, managing our three sites in East London in what we hope to be a huge year coming out of the doom and gloom of 2020, a new year, a new start, we all can’t wait!’
