SAFC farewells Robyn Jones

28 June 2024

The SAFC bids a fond farewell to Head of Operations Robyn Jones, who is leaving the agency in July after three years.

Robyn has been a much valued part of the SAFC team since July 2021 when she first joined as Finance Manager, later going on to lead the agency’s corporate, finance and operations teams in a range of roles including Chief Operating Officer, Head of Finance and Head of Operations.

Robyn came to the SAFC with extensive experience in financial management and governance within the South Australian screen industry, having previously worked for the Adelaide Film Festival as Finance and Governance Manager and at the Mercury (Media Resource Centre) as Accountant/Office Manager. Robyn also worked as an auditor for KPMG and taught finance at Adelaide University for many years.

During her time at the SAFC Robyn led the development and delivery of many key strategic projects including an agency-wide review of organisational policies and procedures, the implementation of a new financial system, and key upgrades to the Adelaide Studios facilities including the installation of new EV chargers and a new phone system for staff, productions and tenants. Robyn was also instrumental in driving the SAFC’s COVID response, judiciously managing agency operations through challenging times for the screen industry globally.

SAFC CEO Kate Croser said “A much loved member of SAFC staff, and an instrumental part of our executive leadership team, Robyn has been a driving force for positive change and growth within the agency, always working to generate the best outcomes for the SAFC business, our staff and the wider screen sector.

“I would like to thank Robyn for her hard work, her commitment and passion and congratulate her on her many achievements for the SAFC. We all wish her the best for the next chapter of her career.”

Robyn Jones said: “It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have been part of such an iconic institution as the SAFC, leading and working with the dynamic SAFC team and collaborating with talented screen industry professionals at Adelaide Studios and across the entire sector.

“As I embark on a new professional journey, I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone at the SAFC, whose dedication and talent have left an indelible mark on my career. I am confident that the team – and SA’s wider screen sector – will continue to reach new heights of success.”

The SAFC will begin a recruitment process shortly. Stay tuned to our newsletter and our social media channels for updates.
