Igloo appoints new technical staff member

Digital agency Igloo, a division of MCM Entertainment Group, has appointed a group software development manager in Lee Kemp.

The announcement:

Leading digital agency, Igloo, is refining its development team in a move that will enhance its technical offerings to clients by strengthening its first-class software development and infrastructure capabilities.

The changes come after Igloo, a division of MCM Entertainment Group (MEG), recorded significant growth over the past year, and in response to the increasing development of large, complex web-based software solutions for its clients.

As a result of this growth, a Group Software Development Manager has been appointed, while the role of Technical Director has been made redundant.

“As the Company moves to the next stage, and the digital environment matures, we need to ensure that our technical structure continues to be optimised to provide our clients with world-class digital solutions and expertise” said Igloo General Manager, Jay Claringbold.

Moving forward Lee Kemp will take on the role of Group Software Development Manager. Currently the Development Manager for MEG’s online video platform solution, Movideo, Lee’s new role will see him manage the Igloo and Movideo Development Teams; ensuring both companies can benefit from shared technical knowledge and infrastructure. Additional development roles will also be created within Igloo and Movideo to manage the growth.  This division of technology will continue to be led by MEG Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Cameron Moore.

Cameron Moore said “I am delighted to promote Lee to this new and well deserved role. Lee has enormous pedigree in delivering large scale technical solutions. MEG has shown significant technical growth over the last 12 months and Lee will ensure the Group will continue to produce world-class technical solutions in this ever growing area.”

Igloo is working with brands from the automotive, media, entertainment, government and leisure, sectors including Mazda Australia, Cricket Australia, Crown, Hardie Grant, Vic Health, the Cancer Council and Quit as well as MCM Media’s consumer brands – Take40.com and The Hot Hits.com.
