FINAL CUT WELCOME JUSTIN BRUKMAN
22 October 2020

Final Cut - alongside VFX and post-production company Significant Others - welcome a new arrival in the form of Justin Brukman, who joins them in the recently-created role of US Managing Director and Director of Global New Business.

Brukman is well-known throughout the industry for his groundbreaking work with top creative agencies - particularly his role in launching MPC in first New York and then all of North America. His hiring emphasises Final Cut's confidence in their talented roster, not to mention their determination to see the industry recover and their company flourish post-Covid.

"This year has been both challenging and illuminating in so many ways," explains Stephanie Apt, US President at Final Cut. "Both Final Cut and Significant Others are dedicated to building for the future. Justin is the perfect person to lead the charge."

Brukman himself explains his enthusiasm at the move thus: "Joining them at this key moment is a tremendous opportunity to be a part of building a vibrant future for these companies and their talent. I am honoured to take on this challenge and to be working with such professional and gifted people."
