Bernard secures VP spot at SPE

Sony ups exec to security position

Stevan Bernard has been appointed VP, corporate security and safety for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

In a newly expanded position, Bernard will be directly responsible for coordinating and supervising studio security and employee safety initiatives, risk analysis, travel security, investigations and litigation support, as well as environmental, health and medical services for Sony Pictures facilities worldwide. He will also support senior management on intellectual property protection issues.

“Safety and security issues increasingly touch virtually every aspect of our studio operations and corporate areas including legal, human relations and government relations,” said Beth Berke, exec VP and chief administrative officer, who has overall management responsibility for studio operations and Sony’s corporate functions.

Like many businesses post 9/11, studios are taking steps to pump up their security departments, and the extensive international experience Bernard brings to the position made him a particularly attractive catch.

Bernard spent 19 years as a senior executive in the corporate security and environmental, health and safety areas for Fortune 500 companies, most recently 3Com Corp. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy and the DEA Drug Enforcement School and received the Bronze Star for military service in Vietnam.

Bernard will report to Jack Kindberg, president, studio operations.
