Publicity exec currently o'seeing 'Limit,' 'Glass,' 'Tale' campaigns

Susan Levin has been upped to senior veepee of publicity at Columbia Pictures. Robert Levin (no relation), Sony Pictures Entertainment’s worldwide marketing prexy, made the announcement.

“I’m a very lucky duck,” said Susan Levin. “I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the most talented people in the business — both in front of and behind the camera.”

An 18-year vet, Susan Levin joined Col’s PR department in 1982 after working as a legal secretary and paralegal. She eventually worked her way up to veepee.

Her promotion comes on the heels of the imminent departure of longtime Sony exec VP of publicity Ed Russell, who’ll retire at the end of his contract this June.

While at Col, she has helped shape campaigns for Sony’s top-grosser “Men in Black,” “Sense and Sensibility,” “The Last Emperor,” “The Big Chill,” “Chaplin,” “The Mask of Zorro” and “Big Daddy.”

Most recently, she was responsible for publicity campaigns for Col’s Sandra Bullock starrer “28 Days.”

Levin is supervising publicity for upcoming Col pics “The Vertical Limit,” from helmer Martin Campbell; “A Knight’s Tale,” from helmer-producer Brian Helgeland; and “The Glass House,” from tyro feature helmer Daniel Sackheim.
