Sony promotes Angela Galgani

Senior VP will lead New York publicity office

Angela Galgani has been upped to senior VP of publicity for Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing & Distribution.

Galgani assumes the day-to-day duties running the Gotham publicity office, previously the responsibility of Gigi Semone, who left the studio in September to pursue other opportunities. She will report to Andre Caraco, exec VP of motion picture publicity.

Galgani will work closely with her Los Angeles-based colleagues as she oversees the New York-based PR staff and develops East Coast-based publicity campaigns for all Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation releases. Galgani is currently working on campaigns for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,” “21 Jump Street,” “The Pirates! Band of Misfits,” “Men in Black 3,” “I Hate You Dad” and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” among other pics.

“I’ve known Angela since she started here as an intern, and I’ve been fortunate to watch her develop her skills and grow into a respected publicist and executive,” Caraco said. “Not only am I proud to recognize her success with this well-deserved promotion, but I’m glad that we will continue to be working together every day, shaping the publicity strategies for our film releases.”

Galgani first joined Sony Pictures in May 1997 as an intern, working on such films as “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” “Men in Black,” “Air Force One” and “As Good As It Gets.” She joined the studio full time as an assistant the next year, later rising through the ranks to become a manager, director, executive director and VP of publicity, handling specialty press, online and print magazines.

She has worked on publicity campaigns for the three “Spider-Man” films, “The Social Network,” “The Da Vinci Code,” “Moneyball,” “Casino Royale” and “Salt,” among many other pics.
