Al Cameron has been promoted to Triumph Releasing Corp.’s VP of branch administration.
Cameron, who was formerly Triumph’s director of branch operations since March 1988, will oversee day-to-day administrative activities of the company’s nine sales branches in the United States and Canada.
Cameron’s area of responsibility includes preparation of budgets, administration of the checking program for verification of box office receipts, personnel and leases. In addition, he will work closely with business affairs in union negotiations.
“With Al as the administrative head of our sales offices, the business of running these operations has been seamless,” Triumph president David Saunders said in a statement. “He is greatly deserving of this new title.”
