Former Disney exec Mark Zoradi has joined Imax Corp. as a non-executive strategic advisor and will advise the company on film acquisition, distribution and marketing, as well as studio and exhibitor relationships.
Zoradi resigned from the Mouse House in November from his post as president of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group overseeing worldwide marketing and distribution. Zoradi started his Disney career as marketing coordinator for Walt Disney Home Video in 1980.
He was the first senior exec to depart after Rich Ross took the reins as chairman of Walt Disney Studios in October.
“The Imax network continues to expand around the globe, and Mark’s industry insight and expertise will no doubt help us further establish ourselves as a critical distribution platform for event titles,” said Imax CEO Richard L. Gelfond in a statement.
