James McGough upped at Summit

Named senior VP, corporate and business development

Summit Entertainment has promoted James McGough to senior VP of corporate and business development. 

Summit said Tuesday that McGough will report to chief financial officer Ron Hohauser.

Mini-major said that in addition to continuing his work with the greenlight committee and the studio’s business planning, McGough will focus on identifying new strategic partnerships and M&A opportunities for Summit.

McGough’s promotion follows his role as VP of corporate and business development at Summit, which he joined in 2009.

The company said his contributions over the past years have included analysis to support the greenlight process, foreign and domestic distribution, long-term planning and M&A. McGough was also involved in the closing of Summit’s refinancing earlier this year.
