People on the Move
- ADELAIDE, Australia
Jennie Zeiher has been appointed president of Rising Sun Pictures (RSP). A long-term RSP executive member, Zeiher in her new position will oversee the day-to-day operations of the business succeeding managing director and co-founder Tony Clark. Zeiher will report to Sébastien Bergeron, CEO of The Fuse Group, parent organization to FuseFX, FOLKS, RSP and El Ranchito. Clark will continue as RSP’s managing director, consulting to both Bergeron and Zeiher.
Zeiher’s appointment comes off the back of 15 years at RSP, with eight years in her role as head of business development, where she has been instrumental in securing high-end work for the company and helping it build a reputation as a trusted brand and a well established and respected visual effects studio.
Bergeron said of the new appointment, “I am proud to elevate Jennie into this role. She is a natural leader who has an exceptional vision for RSP’s brand. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with her and to build the next generation of visual effects studios alongside The Fuse Group’s sister brands.”
The appointment of Zeiher frees up Clark to drive long-term strategy for the award-winning facility to help cement its potential as a global industry leader in visual effects. Clark will help drive innovation, long-term strategic partnerships and the Group’s growth objectives.
Zeiher now looks forward to the new challenge of being at the helm and is fully supported by Clark. “Jennie was the obvious choice to be RSP’s next leader. Her skills, knowledge, strong relationships with clients and sheer passion for the organization will ensure RSP’s continued success. Jennie has my full support and I know she will excel in this role,” said Clark.
In 2017, Zeiher was awarded a scholarship toward a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of South Australia, graduating in 2019; completing the rigorous, four-year program in a little over half the time. Zeiher is a graduate of Australian Institute of Company Directors (GAICD) and is a current board member of the Visual Effects Society (VES) Australian section.
Zeiher added, “It is an honor and a privilege to lead such a talented crew at RSP and to help facilitate what is next for the both the business and its people.”
