With more than a quarter of a century experience in broadcast media, Michael Burton has been appointed the new CEO of Cutting Edge.
After starting out as the Brisbane-based company’s CTO and later moving onto managing director and head of outside broadcast and reality TV, Burton will enhance all areas of the company including post production, visual effects, and broadcast and digital media.
“Our clients need a broader range of services and products than ever before,” Burton said in a statement.
“From creation through to delivery, we’re focused on giving the most value to our clients – whether it’s through asset management and digital delivery efficiencies, or through a new range of services across the digital media space”.
Burton has been a key driving force at the company – which also has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Darwin, London and Tokyo – overseeing the provision of services for Big Brother Australia, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, as well as Fox Sports cricket and Network Ten’s AFL broadcasting.
