Wise Buddah founder to assume Group CEO role

Wise Buddah founder Mark Goodier has announced he is to assume the role of Group CEO, following the departure of Wise Buddah creative MD Dave Holt this summer.

Holt had been at the post-production specialist for over a decade – the last four as MD – and is leaving to take up an opportunity to lead a tech startup in Bangkok.

He commented: “I’d like to thank Mark and everyone at Wise Buddah for a fantastic 10 and a half years, I will miss it massively, but its time for a change and I’m hugely excited to take up the challenge launching the first of hopefully a number of businesses in the software and media sector in Asia.”

Goodier added: “Dave has done a terrific job setting the company up for the future, we have fantastic teams in the group who innovate and deliver to a very high standard”

The changes mean the company will recruit an operations manager to work across the group as well as create opportunities for key people at the company including Natalie Holiday who is promoted to the position of manager, Wise Buddah voices and senior dubbing mixer Jon Last who steps up to the role of director of audio with immediate effect.
