Quickflix new CEO, Chris Taylor

Quickflix Limited has appointed Chris Taylor to CEO. Taylor will be based at the company’s new head office in Sydney.

Taylor was formerly Director of Telstra Media where he oversaw the deliver of Telstra’s IPTV service including the T-Box and other connected platforms.

The appointment follows last week’s announcement of Quickflix and BigPond Movies entering into an agreement to see BigPond Movies DVD rentals close as of 30 September with Telstra recommending Quickflix’s services to its customers. Quickflix will make a payment based on the number of customers who transfer services. Quickflix will also acquire BigPond’s DVDs, Blu-Rays and equipment.

In a statement, Taylor said, “I am very excited and privileged to be joining Quickflix. It is a quality company which has quietly been building momentum, bringing on expertise and investing in the development of its digital delivery capability based on successful international models.”

Quickflix Founder and Executive Chairman Stephen Langford said, “We’re very pleased to appoint Chris as CEO to lead Quickflix into our next exciting phase of growth. He is one of the few media and entertainment executives in Australia with hands-on IPTV experience and has an in-depth understanding of how to engage audiences through movie and TV content. Chris joins our expanded national team of entertainment, media and technology executives and we are in excellent shape to go very hard at driving growth in what is a large market opportunity.”
