Sony Pix marketing exec exits

Neeson to work with Cambodian orphanage

Scott Neeson has ankled as Sony Pictures Releasing Intl. senior exec VP of marketing.

Neeson said he’s exited due to a desire to pursue “personal work in Asia,” primarily at an orphanage he founded last year in Cambodia to provide health care, education and vocational training.

Neeson is making his 11th trip to Cambodia this week, hoping to line up sponsors so he can open two more orphanages.

He said he plans to return to L.A. and seek a marketing job in March or April.

Neeson began working for SPR in September 2003. His responsibilities included working on the overseas marketing strategies behind the launch of Columbia Pictures’ and Revolution Studios’ pics such as “Spider-Man 2,” “50 First Dates” and “S.W.A.T.”

Prior to joining Sony, Neeson served as the prexy of 20th Century Fox Intl. Theatrical. His 14-year tenure with the studio began in 1989 as general manager of the joint venture Hoyts Fox Columbia TriStar Films in his native Australia.

In 1993, Neeson was promoted to VP, international marketing, at Fox. He became prexy of the division in 2000.
