The Governor's Office of Film & Television announced Tuesday the appointment of Tim Williams as new executive director. 

Williams replaced outgoing executive director Vince Porter who moved on to be Governor Kitzhaber's Policy Advisor on Jobs and the Economy, according to Oregon Film

Williams has years of experience in the film and television industry. He was an independent producer for more than 25 years and has worked for a myriad of companies including Fox Searchlight, FreMantle Media, HBO, and the BBC. 

During his recent work for Fox Searchlight on the upcoming film Wild Williams said he really go to know both the Oregon film office and Oregon's media industry. Wild shot on more locations throughout Oregon than any other feature film, according to Oregon Film

"This is a state I have always admired, having family who live and were born here," Williams said. "But it wasn’t until working on Wild that I saw the strength of the Oregon production community and the diversity of locations that make this such a great filming destination."

Williams added that he was excited about the people and the talent he has met and seen in Oregon. 

Oregon Film Board Chairman Gordon Sondland said that he and Governor Kitzhaber are looking forward to working with Williams to create a more robust and stable film and television employment base in Oregon. 

“I am pleased that Oregon was able to attract someone of Tim’s caliber and experience to join us and to build upon Vince Porter’s great work over the past years,” Sondland said.  

Williams will officially start in Oregon Film's Portland office by October 1.
