Int’l marketer Clark to UIP

exec replacing Jegeus

SYDNEY — In a protracted game of musical chairs among international marketing mavens, Nigel Clark is joining London-based United Intl. Pictures as exec VP, international marketing, as of Jan. 4.

Clark replaces Tomas Jegeus, who will become head of international marketing for 20th Century Fox in L.A. at the end of this month (Daily Variety, July 22).

Jegeus is replacing Scott Neeson, who left Fox to head international marketing at Sony Pictures Intl. Releasing.

Neeson’s arrival at Sony prompted the departure of Clark, who was senior exec VP of international marketing at Sony’s then-named Columbia TriStar Film Distributors Intl.

A native Brit, Clark spent 13 years at Columbia, initially in London, where he was responsible for marketing in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Clark moved to L.A. in 1996 and oversaw the campaigns for hits including both installments of “Men in Black,” “Erin Brockovich” and “Spider-Man.”

“We are very fortunate to have someone with Nigel’s background and experience joining UIP and I have no doubt he will continue to build on the strengths of the worldwide marketing teams,” said UIP prexy/chief operating officer Andrew Cripps.
