Lionsgate Touts Global Focus, Adds Sony Veteran Executive Ross Pollack

Touting its increased focus on the global marketplace, Lionsgate has hired industry veteran Ross Pollack as exec VP and chief human resources officer.

The former Sony Pictures exec will report to Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, who made the announcement. Prior to joining Lionsgate, Pollack was managing director of Insigniam in Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

Pollock served as CEO of Hong Kong-based Celestial Pictures between 2009 and 2012 and was instrumental in orchestrating Celestial channels’ merger with Lionsgate, Saban Capital and Tigergate that formed the Celestial Tiger Entertainment platform in 2011.

Pollack previously spent 13 years with Sony Pictures Entertainment, including six years in Hong Kong as senior VP of distribution in Asia.

“Ross is an experienced and well respected strategist who will be a great fit for our innovative and entrepreneurial culture,” said Feltheimer. “Our employees are our greatest asset and, as chief human resources officer, Ross will nurture those aspects of our culture that will continue to drive our creativity and growth.  He also has a tremendous track record of achievement at the major studio level in Asia, and his expertise in the international marketplace will be instrumental in guiding our operations as Lionsgate continues to evolve worldwide.”
