Molinare has appointed Richard Hobbs to the newly created role of commercial director.

Hobbs joins Molinare from Clear Cut Pictures, where he spent nine years, the last five years in the same role.

In his new role he will head up Molinare’s sales team, with responsibility for overseeing the company’s existing client relationships and developing the Soho post firm’s factual client base.

Molinare managing director Julie Parmenter said: “With his experience in the industry and exemplary record at Clear Cut, Richard will undoubtedly be a huge asset to Molinare as we look to increase our offering to clients.”

Clear Cut is not looking to immediately replace Hobbs, who joins Molinare on 1 September.

He added: “I am incredibly excited about joining Molinare, a fantastic company with an excellent reputation.  

“I am also very excited about the company’s ambition to expand and increase their standing in both the domestic and international post production markets. I look forward to joining their great team and taking the company to new heights.”
