Exit Films MD Corey Essey joins Finch to head up new Melbourne office



Independent production company Finch has appointed Exit Films managing director Corey Esse as managing director and executive producer for a new Melbourne office.

Esse joins Finch after just over two years as MD and EP at Exit Films. Previously he worked for US ad agency Fallon as head of integrated production for nearly three years and was regional head of TV production for Publicis Mojo for 18 years.

During his time with Exit Films Esse oversaw Clemenger BBDO Melbourne’s Remote Control Tourist campaign for Tourism Victoria.

On his appointment Esse said: “I am excited about the prospect of working with Finch and helping grow the brand. The company has a lot to offer.”

The new Melbourne office aims to better service the Victorian advertising community with founder Rob Galluzzo continuing to oversea the company.

Exit Films EP Emma Lawrence is currently undertaking MD duties at the company following Esse’s departure.

She said: “We congratulate Corey on his new role and wish him all the best. Corey became a great friend to many of us and he will be missed.”

Esse starts with Finch from February 1.
