Steve Luther has been appointed to the role of finance director at Evolutions. He has been working at Smoke & Mirrors since its merger with Red Post Production in 2005 where he was managing/finance director. In his new role he will have overall responsibility for the $19.2m (£11m) company's finances and manage the accounts team. Luther will join the Evolutions board and will replace Emmet Byrne who is joining BDA.

Simon Kanjee, managing director of the Soho-based independent post-production facility, said: 'Steve has a wealth of experience in managing the finances of a post-production facility. As Evolutions continues to grow we are always looking for the most experienced and professional staff and this is what we have in Steve.'

Luther, who has 13 years' experience in the post production industry will take up his new role on November 3. 'It is not often that one gets the opportunity to leave one great company for another. Evolutions has seen rapid growth since the management buyout and is now one of the top three companies in the industry. It has a fantastic management team and I am looking forward to working with them,' said Luther.
