Weinstein Company View Bio »
As a veteran of over 36 years in the motion picture industry, I’ve held many different positions at many different companies. All of my time has been spent in distribution, with an early stint in exhibition. For the past six years I’ve been the Senior Vice President of Domestic Distribution for The Weinstein Company. Since this is a smaller company, my duties cover many different areas including gross reporting for the company, finding the optimal date to release each specific title, oversee Deluxe Laboratory with the distribution on Digital Cinema Packages (DCP) for theatrical use, manage the non-theatrical division (which includes military, schools, hospitals etc) and many other aspects.
Prior to TWC, I spent five years having similar responsibilities at MGM as Senior Vice President in their distribution department.
The previous 19 years were spent in both Los Angeles and Dallas with Paramount Pictures. While there, I spent my time in the sales force, essentially “selling movies to the theatres”. I would speak to the film buyers from theatres chains such as AMC, Regal and Cinemark as well as independent theatres to play our titles, negotiate the terms of the rental and length of the engagement, as well as collect the film rental after the run.
And the career in movies began where it should, as a 16 year-old usher (and eventually manager) at the local AMC theatre in Denver CO.
I hold a BA in Marketing from the University Of Colorado.
I currently reside in West Hills with my wife Lisa and 14 year-old daughter, Sydney.

9:05am-9:40am Fireside Chat: “Entertainment Omni-Channel “

Retailers are laser focused on building out and perfecting their own omni-channel experiences. Driven by the philosophy that the transactional experience for consumers should be friction free where consumers can buy what they want, when they want it and how they want it to their own specifications. How does that work when it comes to another transactional category, namely entertainment?
The appetite for content is stronger than ever, but the ways that consumers can experience it is fragmenting more and more. What is a marketer to do? How do you make sense of it all, never mind try to tie into it.
