Paramount Pictures has promoted Syrinthia Studer to EVP of worldwide acquisitions.

She dually reports to Marc Evans, president of the motion picture group, and Bob Buchi, president of worldwide home media distribution. In her expanded duties, Studer will be in charge of acquiring films for theatrical release, reporting to Evans. She will report to Buchi on all worldwide home media acquisitions.

“Syrinthia has led the charge for Paramount’s international film partnerships and acquisitions and has helped the company grow on a global scale,” Evans and Buchi said in a joint statement. “Her distribution and marketing efforts for the Viacom brands in the home media space were unparalleled and have provided an important integration throughout the company. We are happy to have her expand the role.”

Studer was elevated from SVP of marketing and acquisitions for Paramount Pictures’ Worldwide Home Media and TV Licensing divisions, where she launched and managed the studio’s division focused on ancillary-driven acquisitions, overseeing the negotiation and acquisition of groundbreaking domestic and international film and distribution relationships.

She was responsible for a multi-picture relationship with IFC Films that included the home media release of the award-winning feature film Boyhood. Studer also acquired film festival favorites The Intervention, Goat, A.C.O.D, Ashby and Love, Rosie and numerous internationally distributed features, including Oscar winner Spotlight, for select territories. In addition to her work in global acquisitions, Studer previously oversaw the marketing and distribution of home media releases from Viacom flagship brands Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, and Paramount’s Television and Digital Entertainment groups, as well as cable partners CBS and Showtime.

Prior to joining Paramount, Studer served as VP of strategic marketing for Loews Cineplex Entertainment. Her career also included business development and promotional marketing roles with Fortune 500 companies including General Mills and IBM.
