  • Georgie Hean

    Office Manager / Production Assistant, Australia

    “Just ask Georgie”. It’s become a familiar phrase in the Melbourne office. Our Office Manager / Production Assistant runs a very tight ship with the ever-increasing number of jobs sailing through our doors. Totally reliable and an outstanding multi-tasker (including occasional dog-sitting for the two resident pooches), we’re waiting for the day we catch this former cheerleader and karaoke connoisseur in action.
