Wayne Borg, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi’s twofour54, is leaving the government-backed organisation to relocate to his native Australia.
Borg joined twofour54 in early 2008 and was responsible for developing and managing the company’s strategic operations in its early stages.
Prior to twofour54 he held the post of executive vice president at Universal Pictures International in London.
“I’ve had six wonderful years in Abu Dhabi and felt the time was right to get back to my family in Australia,” said Borg who is relocating to Sydney at the end of the year.
During Borg’s tenure, twofour54 established a regional film and media industry hub in Abu Dhabi, encompassing film production and broadcast facilities, training programmes and content development.
Borg also oversaw the launch of the annual Abu Dhabi Media Summit.
The Abu Dhabi Film Festival moved under twofour54 in early 2012, while the Abu Dhabi Film Commission became part of the organisation in 2011.
