In addition to coin duties, exec to o'see distrib'n partners

Revolution Studios has upped Jeff Small to chief financial officer of the company, replacing Marc Evans, who is ankling the post.

In his new post, Small will oversee financial and strategic planning, corporate treasury, business development, production finance, accounting and operations for Revolution. New post will also have him overseeing the company’s international distribution partners.

Small has been heading strategic planning and business development for Revolution since 2000, when he joined the company.

He reports to Revolution partner Rob Moore.

Now an entrepreneur

Evans is leaving Revolution to focus on a new, yet-to-be-revealed entertainment business venture.

“The opportunity to help build Revolution Studios from the ground up has been an invaluable experience and has given me the impetus to pursue my own entrepreneurial venture,” Evans said.

He had been with the studio since its formation in 2000, and worked closely with Moore in setting up the financial structure of the company. He was instrumental in securing Revolution’s two revolving lines of credit with JP Morgan Chase & Co. that totaled $650 million.

Small’s big steps

Before joining Revolution, Small spent several years with Universal Studios, beginning in the corporate development group, where he played key roles in mergers and acquisitions across film, television and music, including the acquisitions of Polygram and the USA Network.

He then transitioned to Universal Pictures as director of business development, where he was responsible for sourcing and analyzing new business opportunities and financing packages for the studio.

Small also worked for the Walt Disney Motion Picture Group, specializing in the planning and analysis for the development, production and distribution of the company’s pics.
