Paul Heaney said: “I’ve had a fantastic ten years at Cineflix growing the distribution operation from scratch to the success we are today. It has been an incredibly tough decision but I feel that it’s the right time to pursue new opportunities and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead.  Cineflix has, without doubt, one of the best teams in the business and I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished together. I will be watching Cineflix's progress intently and wish everyone at Cineflix continued success.”
