Relativity promotes Kyle Davies

Exec named president of worldwide distribution

Relativity Media has promoted Kyle Davies to prexy of worldwide distribution.

Davies, who was previously prexy of theatrical distribution, will report directly to Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and president Steve Bertram.

As leader of its distribution operation, Davies has helped guide Relativity in its transformation from a financing and producing entity into a full-fledged studio. He’ll continue to oversee all domestic theatrical distribution strategies and work closely with Relativity’s foreign output partners.

Exec joined Relativity when the company acquired Overture Films’ marketing and distribution assets in 2010. At Overture, Davies oversaw the distribution of such films as “Law Abiding Citizen” and “The Visitor.”

Prior to Overture, Davies was senior VP of the Western distribution division at Paramount, which he joined after the studio bought DreamWorks, where he’d been senior VP of distribution. Before DreamWorks, Davies worked for exhibitors including National Amusements and General Cinema.

“As Relativity focuses more of our energies into our homegrown slate, we are committed to anchoring an even stronger foothold in the distribution arena, and Kyle Davies’ promotion continues to bolster that effort,” Kavanaugh said.

“Kyle is a seasoned distribution executive who’s built long-standing relationships with exhibitors and has had a successful track record in distributing films across a multitude of genres. We’re fortunate to have him on Relativity’s team as we continue to strengthen our distribution unit,” added Bertram.

“I look forward to working alongside our incredible foreign output partners who are among the best in the business, as we head into the busy fall and first quarter schedule,” said Davies, who is currently working on the upcoming Relativity pics “Shark Night 3D,” “Immortals” and “Haywire.”
