Reardon named ShoWester of year

He's a real pioneer in distribution

Barry Reardon, president of motion picture distribution for Warner Bros., has been named the Robert W. Selig ShoWester of the Year, it was announced Monday by ShoWest president Daniel Wheatcroft.

The industry vet will receive the award March 10 at Bally’s Hotel in Las Vegas.

“This is the first time that exhibition’s top tribute will go to someone other than an exhibitor,” Wheatcroft said. “We’re honored to present this award to Barry, an executive who is one of the genuine modern pioneers in our industry.”

Under Reardon’s distribution leadership, WB has produced more movies grossing more than $100 million and has maintained the top slot in market share more often than any other production/distribution company.

Reardon has been president of Warner Bros. Distribution Corp. since 1980. Before that he served as exec VP and general sales manager at the studio. He currently is a member of the Motion Picture Pioneers, Variety Club of Southern California, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and is on the board of directors of the Paulist Foundation.
