Unapix Entertainment has tapped Jay M. Green as VP, director of corporate relations.
Green, in his new post, will oversee Unapix’s investor relations, corporate public relations and corporate marketing.
Most recently, Green served as an adviser to new-media and Internet companies. Before that, Green was VP of public relations and corporate communications at Paxar Corp. and held a similar post at Seitel Inc. He was also co-managing partner of Eastern operations for the Financial Relations Board and an exec at Bur-son-Marsteller. Green began his career as a journalist at McGraw-Hill and Business Week.
Unapix, which recently promoted David A. Dreilinger as prexy-CEO and Rob Miller as prexy of Unapix’s television arm, has rapidly been expanding its company. Earlier this year, the company formed its own distrib arm, Unapix Films Theatrical, headed by Richard Abramowitz. “Grass,” one of the first films acquired by the new arm, opened last weekend.
