Former exec at Summit, Marvel

On the heels of debuting Ron Howard’s “Rush” at the Toronto Film Festival, Exclusive Media has tapped Ron Hohauser as its chief financial officer.

Hohauser has been serving as a consultant to Exclusive Media for the past year during the company launch of its domestic distribution label.

Hohauser, the former CFO at Summit, will also oversee all film finance strategy for Exclusive Media’s three production labels: UK-based genre label Hammer, Los Angeles-based documentary film arm Spitfire Pictures and the flagship Exclusive Media production label. He will also be part of the core executive team focusing on sourcing equity opportunities and building strategic partnerships.

During his tenure at  Summit, the company raised over $1 billion in equity and debt financing to support its transformation into a mini-major film studio. Hohauser also led the $750 million recapitalization of Summit in 2011 as well as the sale of Summit to Lionsgate in January 2012 for $412 million.

Hohauser joined Marvel Studios in 2004 to assist the company in raising production financing for a slate of films based on Marvel characters and became CFO of Marvel’s production entities, Hohauser led Marvel to close a $525 million film production credit facility.

Ron Hohauser has an impeccable history of steering companies through growth to strong commercial success and his expertise particularly in raising finance will be invaluable as Exclusive Media continues to expand its production and distribution operations,” said Exclusive co-toppers Nigel Sinclair and Guy East.

Along with Hohauser’s arrival, Exclusive Media has also elevated Chris Lytton to the position of EVP Business & Legal Affairs and General Counsel.
