Katherine E. Goodman has joined Intermedia, the L.A.- and London-based international production and distribution company, as senior VP of business and corporate affairs.
The announcement was made by Intermedia co-chairs and founding partners Guy East and Nigel Sinclair.
Goodman — who had served as a consultant to the company in 1996 — will be involved in all financial and business aspects of the company’s operations in both L.A. and London.
Formerly, Goodman was a partner in the entertainment group of the law firm Katten, Muchin & Zavis, where she specialized in film finance and distribution. She has been involved in the independent financing of films that include “Braveheart,” “The Usual Suspects” and “Shadowlands.”
Intermedia was established in 1991, under its original banner Intermedia Film Equities Inc., as an investment banking and consulting practice in the U.S. and Europe.
Last year, East and Sinclair reorganized the company, setting up an international holding company with offices on both shores. The company also bowed Intermedia Television, naming Justin Hatfield president of the new TV division.
Intermedia now focuses on the finance and distribution of films and TV programming, while maintaining the investment banking business based in L.A.
Among projects comprising the Intermedia slate are the Scott Free films “Where the Money Is” and “In Too Deep”; as well as “Land Girls” from West Eleven Films; “The Barber of Siberia” from Camera One; and “Sliding Doors,” produced by Sydney Pollack’s Mirage Entertainment.
