Weinstein Company boosts international staff

Rothstein, Kier upped to VP positions

The Weinstein Co. is bolstering its international division as part of a larger strategic expansion.

Gotham-based firm has promoted Michael Rothstein to senior veep of international sales and distribution and upped Jonathan Kier to veep of international distribution and sales.

Both will expand territorial responsibilities as part of the move. They will continue reporting to TWC international prexy Glen Basner.

Company also has hired Icon publicity maven Suzanne Noble, who worked on campaigns for “The Passion of the Christ,” “What Women Want” and “Y tu mama tambien,” and promoted Paula Woods to senior veep of international publicity. Both are based in TWC’s London offices.

Rothstein is a longtime Weinstein staffer; he began working at Miramax in 1997 and also has served as director of business and legal affairs and director of development and production.

Kier has done stints at MTV and at Marc Platt’s Universal-based shingle. At the Weinstein Co., he has overseen international release for pics including “Hoodwinked” and “Clerks II.”

Basner will continue to spearhead the company’s international efforts, which recently expanded to include repping titles for which the company does not own rights. Most notably, it handled international sales for “The Brothers Bloom” at AFM.

TWC said it plans to continue to beef up its international sales efforts in the coming months.
