Peter Rowe is to chair West Australia’s screen agency ScreenWest.
Rowe replaces outgoing chair, Erica Smyth who steps down after six years.
The agency has added an additional ninth member to the board in its new round of appointments.
Also joining the board is Janelle Marr and Dax Calder for three-year appointments.
Meanwhile Alan Lindsay has been re-appointed to the board for a further three years.
WA’s Culture and the Arts minister John Day said of Smyth’s tenure: “During Ms Smyth’s tenure, ScreenWest has attracted unprecedented national and overseas interest in Western Australia as a location for film and television production while proactively supporting indigenous filmmakers, resulting in a thriving WA screen industry.
“More than $150m of production has occurred in the State during this time, including Bran Nue Dae, Mad Bastards, Red Dog, Cloudstreet, The Circuit and Lockie Leonard.”
