Film content delivery company Gofilex, is to formally open business in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The expansion will see Gofilex’s services extend to Australia and New Zealand on 17th May, managed by a newly-formed team.
Current APAC General Managers of MPS and Deluxe, respectively Jason Harrod and Teresa Hobbs, will expand their current roles to become Co-General Managers of Gofilex APAC, heading up the Sydney- and Melbourne-based team.
The joint investment enables Gofilex to provide a world-class IP delivery solution through a single sustainable electronic fulfilment platform and is the next step in a global IP expansion strategy. Having both companies at the helm continues to drive innovation while expanding across the region, further supporting distributors and exhibitors.
The Gofilex platform allows for a more streamlined delivery method than the current hard disk methodology. Harrod and Hobbs’ team will be supporting transition from current systems to the Gofilex platform.
Teri Hobbs said of the launch:
“We’re really pleased to have a local team on the ground and in the wider area. Customers will get all the benefits of a team that are in the same time zone and territory, with experience and understanding of the needs of the Australian market. We’re focusing on delivering a superior network for customers.”
Jason Harrod added:
“We’re delighted to be extending Gofilex in Australia and New Zealand, to provide a top-class service to our partners and customers. Our focus is a solution that provides greater transparency to both those in exhibition and distribution. Our goal is always to be best in class and best in region.”
