Veteran packaged-media champion now overseeing global territories
Longtime Paramount Home Media Distribution U.K. executive Charlie McAuley has reportedly expanded his duties as SVP, home media distribution, international.
The move comes as Paramount subcontracts disc sales and distribution to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment for select foreign territories beginning this month.
McAuley, former chairman of the British Video Association, will help in the transition to Universal. He reports to Gaspare Benso, who was named EVP and GM of Paramount Home Media International in 2014, according to Cue Entertainment.
McAuley previously worked at Universal Pictures International, where he served as VP of Latin America and Asia Pacific. He also worked at Woolworths and Blockbuster International.
