Par Classics ups Nash to VP, acquisitions

Ring upped to director

Paramount Classics’ Michael Nash has been promoted to VP of acquisitions and co-productions, while Justin Ring has been upped to director of acquisitions and co-productions.

Nash replaces Ellen Steloff, who will consult for Par Classics while devoting more time to her family.

In his new capacity, Nash will head up the acquisitions department and report to Par Classics co-presidents Ruth Vitale and David Dinerstein. Previously, Nash served as a creative exec and reported to Steloff.

“Michael Nash is one of the brightest young executives in the business,” said Vitale and Dinerstein in a joint statement. “He has impeccable taste and a keen eye for talent. He and Steloff were instrumental in launching this company (and) we look forward to continuing to work with Ellen in her new capacity.”

Ring, who joined Par Classics 18 months ago as a story editor, will continue to report to Nash.

Paramount Classics, the autonomous specialized division of Paramount Pictures, will release Sofia Coppola’s feature film debut, “The Virgin Suicides,” on Friday. Other upcoming titles include Alain Berliner’s “Passion of Mind,” Istvan Szabo’s “Sunshine” and Patrice Leconte’s “Girl on the Bridge.”
