The managing directors of Molinare and Goldcrest have joined the board of facilities trade association UK Screen.

Molinare’s Julie Parmenter and Goldcrest’s Patrick Malone will sit on the board with re-elected directors Paul Bennett, Ivan Dunleavy and Alex Hope in the five available board slots.

Malone said: “UK Screen does valuable work for our sector. As a director I am keen to explore and further progress two key initiatives; the ongoing development and long term security of the UK post business via mutual support and collaborative effort, and the encouragement, training and development of young people into the creative and technical industry leaders of tomorrow.”

Parmenter added: “I am delighted to have been elected to the UK Screen board. Molinare has been a supporter of UK Screen for many years and participating in events and working on issues which bring the film and television community together is very important to me.
