Magnolia Pictures has upped vet execs Tom Quinn and Jeff Reichert to senior VP.
Both are longtime department heads at the Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban-owned indie distrib – Quinn in acquisitions, Reichert in marketing and publicity. The two will now jointly share all major responsibilities surrounding the release of the company’s expanding slate.
Created in 2001, Magnolia has grown from a handful of employees to a staff of more than 30. Through a mix of acquisitions and in-house productions, it is now aiming to release in the vicinity of 25 titles a year.
Reichert joined Magnolia in 2002 and has handled publicity and marketing for features such as “Woman Thou Art Loosed,” “The World’s Fastest Indian” and “Ong Bak,” and docs such as the Oscar-nommed “Capturing the Friedmans” and “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room.” He is also co-founder and editor of online film journal Reverse Shot.
Quinn began his film career in L.A. doing domestic publicity at Dennis Davidson Associates. At Samuel Goldwyn, he rose to VP of acquisitions, where he was responsible for acquiring “Raising Victor Vargas” and “Supersize Me.” Quinn joined Magnolia in 2004, overseeing theatrical and homevid acquisitions. His notable buys have included “The Host,” “Jesus Camp” and “Terror’s Advocate.”
