Daniel Hill made MD of Val Morgan Cinema following Damian Keogh’s move with Hoyts



The Val Morgan Cinema Network has promoted its chief revenue officer Daniel Hill to managing director, following the promotion of  CEO Damian Keogh to CEO of the Hoyts Group earlier this week.

Hill joined Val Morgan as national sales manager in 2011 having previously spent almost a decade working on the sales team at Channel Seven, and then gone to IMG Fashion as general manager.

Keogh said the business has grown by over 40 per cent in the last two years while Hill led the national sales team in a “relatively flat advertising market”.

“He is ready to step up to a more senior role across the business,” Keogh said. “He has great support with experienced sales leaders in his team and we have a strong expectation of further above market growth in 2014 and beyond.”

Hill, who started the new role yesterday, said the future cinema release slate is “particularly strong” and attracting advertisers.

“With our CineTAM audience measurement platform, we are well positioned to continue to attract more advertising revenue to cinema,” Hill said.

Val Morgan maintains cinema has had the biggest start to the year in history over the last five weeks. Upcoming blockbusters include The Lego Movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
