Wētā FX is shifting the responsibilities of its executive team, after it has become clear the company would benefit from New Zealand based leadership to manage its almost two thousand member crew. Accordingly, LA-based, Prem Akkaraju is no longer Worldwide CEO.
Mr Akkaraju remains a shareholder and director of Wētā FX.
Sir Peter Jackson said, "Prem was instrumental in establishing Wētā's partnership with Unity and we are incredibly grateful to him for that. Unity are world leaders in delivering tech and we are looking forward to continuing to work with them to fulfil our shared vision of empowering artists across the globe to take their work to the next level.”
