Elms becomes chairman

The former CFO of Image Metrics has joined the facial animation specialist firm Cubic Motion.

Simon Elms steps up as Cubic Motion’s new chairman, and pledged to help expand the company’s client base.

He said “Cubic is well-poised to become the leading supplier in the highly specialised field of facial animation. The company is built around a nucleus of the finest technologists and practitioners in the field and is a very well-structured and well-run business that clearly provides outstanding value to its clients.”

Cubic Motion director Gareth Edwards said he had “no hesitation” recommending Elms’s appointment as chairman.

“Simon combines extraordinary attention to detail with an entrepreneurial mind. He has a deep understanding of our industry and is widely respected by partners and clients,” Edwards added.
