Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer Awarded with Producers Guild Milestone Award

The Producers Guild of America has selected Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer as the recipient of its 2015 Milestone Award.

The award will be presented at the 26th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 24 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

“On behalf of the entire Lionsgate team, it is a tremendous honor and deeply humbling to join the elite group of recipients previously honored with the Milestone Award,” said Feltheimer. “The Producers Guild represents the creativity, innovation and dynamism that sets our industry apart from all others.”

PGA Awards co-chairs Todd Black and Ryan Murphy said, “Jon Feltheimer is one of the most accomplished leaders in the industry and has played a pivotal role in Lionsgate’s evolution from independent studio to global content leader. Jon’s passion across the spectrum of storytelling has brought us such iconic films and TV shows as ‘Mad Men,’ ‘Weeds,’ ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Monster’s Ball,’ ‘Precious,’ ‘Crash’ and ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Divergent’ franchises.”

Previous recipients include Clint Eastwood, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ron Meyer, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, Les Moonves and the 2014 recipient Bob Iger.

Prior to joining Lionsgate, Feltheimer held posts at Sony Pictures Entertainment and New World Entertainment. He became CEO of Lionsgate in 2000.

Lionsgate’s  market capitalization has grown from $80 million in 2000 to nearly $5 billion.
