Bossiere takes Revolution post

Exec to o'see intl. marketing, distribution

Revolution has tapped Geoffrey Bossiere, former general manager of 20th Century Fox Japan, to oversee international marketing and distribution for the Sony-based studio.

Bossiere will partially fill the gap left by Geoffrey Ammer, who had handled Revolution’s worldwide marketing and distribution. Ammer recently ankled to become marketing prexy for Columbia TriStar marketing group. (Daily Variety, Aug. 23).

Due to the increased workload created by a growing slate of pics in different stages of distribution, Revolution decided to split the marketing duties between two execs — one for domestic marketing and one for international.

“I feel fortunate to be given the chance to work with such a talented group of executives and look forward to working with Sony Pictures Entertainment, and with the very important strategic partners that Revolution has overseas,” said Brossiere.

In addition to serving as a liaison for Revolution’s international distribution partners, Bossiere will also supervise certain ancillary markets, including Canadian free and pay television.

“I have known Geoff (Bossiere) for years and I am delighted to have him on board to oversee the activities in our foreign markets,” said Revolution partner and former Fox topper Tom Sherak. “Geoff’s experience in Japan will be invaluable to Revolution Studios and to our international partners.”

Bossiere served as general manager of Fox Japan for five years, overseeing films such as “Titanic,” “Star Wars: Episode One” and “Independence Day.”

Joining Fox Intl. in 1992, Bossiere was sent to Japan as a management trainee in 1993 and was upped to GM in 1997.
