Loews CEO lands Pioneer nod

Foundation fetes Reid with annual honor

Travis Reid, prexy-CEO of Loews Cineplex Entertainment, has been tapped pioneer of the year by the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation.

Reid started his exhib career at age 20 working in a California drive-in. If the government approves Loews’ merger with AMC, Reid will assist in the transition and then leave the company. Peter Brown will then helm the world’s largest theater circuit, in terms of total revenue.

Reid is also instrumental in aiding Loews to raise half a million dollars each summer for the Will Rogers Institute.

Cecil B. DeMille, Jack Warner, Sumner Redstone, Michael Eisner and Alan Horn are past recipients of the nod given to charitable business leaders.

Kudos will be presented at the foundation’s 67th annual gala Feb. 9 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
