Just more than seven months after being promoted to SVP and GM of worldwide digital distribution, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has promoted Jason Spivak again, to EVP of worldwide digital distribution.
“Jason has overseen tremendous growth in our digital transactional business,” said Jim Underwood, EVP of worldwide digital and commercial strategy. “This has been done, in large part, by his forging strong partnerships with our customers and working with them to innovate and drive increased business in this area, especially through the ongoing roll-out of UltraViolet and cloud storage systems as well as the introduction of new and emerging business models that are critical to insuring on-going, intelligently managed growth for our home entertainment business.
“His expertise in the field, the trust he’s built with our customers and his ability to think strategically about our business have created effective distribution strategies necessary to keep our customers at the forefront of digital home entertainment.”
Spivak has held management positions on both the physical and digital sides of the business, and has also served as SVP of strategic development for the studio. Prior to joining Sony, Spivak worked for eight years at MGM Home Entertainment.
