Inverleigh today announced that Catherine Purton is joining the company as Production Manager.
An accomplished media and production professional, Catherine joins Inverleigh from the AFL (Australian Football League), where she most recently held the role of Production Manager at AFL Media — a role she maintained since its formation in 2011. Catherine succeeds Jessica Smith who oversaw Inverleigh’s production operations since 2013.
Catherine will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating all production operations at Inverleigh, as well as working closely with the commercial team on new business development.
“Catherine is a highly experienced production professional, having worked closely with numerous television networks in Australia, and we are thrilled to have someone of her calibre at the helm of our production team,” said Peter Wraith, Inverleigh Director.
“This is a fantastic time to join Inverleigh, I’m excited for the opportunity to head-up such a wonderful production team and continue to build on the company’s storied success and innovation,” said Catherine Purton.
As part of her appointment, Purton will oversee Inverleigh’s 40-strong production staff, assuming responsibility for production operations that includes 15 half hour shows every week, as well as an increasing range of co-production projects the company undertakes.
