Smith has had an extensive career in film and television most recently with Tiffen where he was Asia-Pacific manager and solely responsible for significantly growing sales of the company’s film and TV acquisition products across the region. Prior to Tiffen Smith, also a former board member of SMPTE Australia, had successful roles at Australia’s Nine TV Network, Miller and Codan Broadcast.
Smith concluded, “ARRI’s product range, brand and commitment in the market are second to none. Whether they are helping an owner operator DOP, dealing with a rental house or providing cameras and equipment for some of the largest TV and movie productions in the world the level of quality, dedication and professionalism is always of the same incredibly high standard. This is something I intend not only to carry on but improve wherever possible. I will also continue to grow ARRI’s already strong relationships with local customers and organisations across Australia and New Zealand, provide a mentoring role to young innovators and create new opportunities for all the new products and product evolutions ARRI launches.”
