Key Player: Bob Weinstein

Co-Chairman Miramax Films; Founder, Dimension Films

Exec trivia: The Weinstein brothers have guided Miramax films to 214 Academy Award nominations.

The basics: Bob Weinstein handles expenditures and revenues for Miramax. His management of Miramax’s distribution pipeline and sound financial approach when the studio was independent helped make it the largest indie distributor in the world. Bob is also the founder of Dimension, Miramax’s genre division committed to sci-fi, horror and action fare.

Rep: Known as the “quiet” Weinstein, Bob is often content to let brother Harvey steal the limelight in regard to company successes and failures.
