Marcoly had joined Paramount in 2011, a year after stepping down from the same slot at Disney. Paramount did not disclose the reasons for Marcoly’s departure.
Friday’s shakeup comes a month after Paramount announced that Megan Colligan had been promoted to president of worldwide distribution and marketing. That move came in the wake of last month’s departure of Paramount’s chief marketing officer Josh Greenstein, who succeeded Jeff Blake as chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution.
Nic Crawley has been promoted to the post of president of international marketing and distribution while Mark Viane will become co-president of international marketing and distribution. Both execs will oversee all international marketing and distribution and report to Colligan.
“In today’s global marketplace, marketing and distribution needs to be a seamless operation,” said Colligan. “With Nic’s outstanding track record on the marketing side and Mark’s global distribution experience, Paramount will creatively and effectively enhance its global reach and achieve even greater exposure for our filmmakers.”
Crawley has been Paramount’s president of international marketing since 2011. He worked at Disney for nearly 20 years and had been senior VP of global marketing.
Viane has served as senior VP of international distribution for Asia Pacific and Latin America for Paramount since 2012. He joined Paramount in 2007 after more than a decade at United International Pictures.
