We are thrilled to announce that Gez Hixson is now Global COO of Outpost VFX, having been promoted from the position of Global Head of Production.

Gez will be responsible for the seamless and service-focused operation of Outpost VFX around the world, with the remit of ensuring the smooth running of our facilities in Bournemouth, Montréal and Singapore.

Previously leading our production teams across our three sites as Global Head of Production, Gez has been essential to the development of our international production offering and helping the company to scale from circa 30 artists in 2016 to an available 600 seats globally in 2019.

Having traversed production roles to arrive at COO and a position on the Outpost VFX board of directors, Gez will continue to focus on how we provide exceptional levels of service to our international clients and continuing to develop a company culture that aspires to be unique in the visual effects sector.

“As we continue to grow it’s vital that we have one person who has the key responsibility of delivering the things that make Outpost special for clients and our internal team,” said Duncan McWilliam, Founder and CEO.

Gez joined Outpost VFX in 2016 and has produced visual effects for film and TV projects including Jack Ryan, Life and Nocturnal Animals. Since late 2018 he has served as Global Head of Production and has been instrumental in our successful expansions into Montréal and the APAC region.
