“Peter’s award-winning online accomplishments have been essential to USA Films’ success over the past year,” Schwartz said. “His savvy and understanding of today’s new-media environment, combined with his creativity, intelligence and enthusiasm have been and continue to be invaluable to us.”

Dawes has been with USA Films since its inception last year.

Previously, he was director of marketing for October Films, before the production company was merged into USA, along with Gramercy Pictures, and certain PolyGram Filmed Entertainment assets.
