Tilane Jones has been named president of Ava DuVernay‘s ARRAY, a film collective dedicated to amplifying films made by women and people of color.

In the newly-created role, Jones (pictured) will lead Array Alliance, the non-profit dedicated to social impact and education, as well as The Array Creative Campus, a three-building compound for production and public programming focused on marginalized filmmakers.

She will continue to oversee Array Releasing, the company’s film distribution arm, where she has been responsible for the acquisition, booking and marketing of the collective’s more than 25 films.

Jones, who has been with the company since its inception in 2010, brings more than a decade of experience in the film and non-profit spaces.

“Tilane’s contribution to ARRAY over the past decade has been monumental. In Tilane, we have a dynamic, highly-skilled leader with deep experience and commitment to our mission,” DuVernay said in a statement. “As ARRAY embarks on our new era of growth and evolution, I’m overjoyed to continue to work side by side with such a terrific executive and an even better human being.”

Prior to leading the collective’s 20-person team, Jones joined DuVernay as an office manager in 2007. Before ARRAY, Jones was an executive in the real estate financing industry.
