The Australian Government has named Graham Bradley as the new chair of the Film Finance Corporation Australia (FFC) board, effective from January 1 next year.

For the eight years to September last year he was chief executive of Perpetual Trustees Australia Ltd, a publicly listed funds management and financial services group, and in 2002 he was named Business Leader of the Year by the Institute of Chartered Accountants/Zurich Financial.

Bradley's financial expertise and business acumen should assist chief executive Brian Rosen's commitment to stretching the FFC's shrinking dollars. Part of that plan is to search out new financial partners from within Australia's investment community.
