Toronto – January 30th, 2019– New Metric Media today announced the appointment of Matthew Vittiglio to the role of Vice President, Finance. The announcement was made by the production company’s president, Mark Montefiore.
Vittiglio will lead all financial efforts for the company’s quickly expanding domestic and international output. In 5 years, New Metric Media has successfully produced a roster of critically acclaimed and original TV series including BAD BLOOD (Netflix, CityTV), WHAT WOULD SAL DO? (Superchannel) and the marquee Canadian hit, LETTERKENNY (Hulu, CraveTV), which saw New Metric Media ink an unprecedented 40-plus episode production commitment and comprehensive multi-year deal with series broadcaster, CraveTV.
Vittiglio comes to New Metric Media with an equally impressive ascent. He has held several financial positions across multiple organizations including the Canada Revenue Agency, KPMG, Epitome Pictures, DHX, and at 9 Story Media Group where he facilitated the acquisition and financial integration of two material international groups of production companies. Matt also implemented the corporate and tax restructuring of the international distribution business. Prior to 9 Story, Matt held the position of Controller at Epitome Pictures, the award winning live action studio and producers of Degrassi and Instant Star, where he oversaw corporate and production finance and business affairs as well as facilitated the sell side due diligence and subsequent financial integration of Epitome to DHX Media.
“Matt’s experience will no doubt further professionalize the corporate infrastructure and financial position of New Metric Media but will also be critical to the growth of the company in North America and beyond,” says Mark Montefiore.
Matt’s appointment comes shortly after the announcement of Alex Lalonde joining the company as VP of Business Development and Operations and Beth Iley as Director of Development. Matt will be working alongside Alex Lalonde and will report to Mark Montefiore.
