Sony Names Man Jit Singh as President of Home Entertainment Division

Exec comes from operating company of Sony Television's networks in India

Highlighting the continued focus on international markets, Sony Pictures Entertainment has named Man Jit Singh as president of the studio’s home entertainment division. Singh comes from Multi Screen Media, the operating company of Sony Television’s networks in India.

Singh will replace former Sony home entertainment head David Bishop, who exits the studio in March.

While transitioning into his new role in the home entertainment division, Singh will manage Sony’s Indian TV networks as CEO, reporting to Andy Kaplan, president of Sony Television’s worldwide networks. Singh will continue to develop local-language programming for MSM.

As head of Sony home entertainment, meanwhile, Singh will report to Michael Lynton, chairman and CEO for Sony Entertainment, and Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures.

“Man Jit is a savvy global executive with a long track record of success at Sony Pictures, having built our Indian TV channels into high-performance, high-margin businesses,” Lynton said. “I am confident in his vision for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and his ability to provide strong leadership for the division as the marketplace continues to evolve.”

Singh joined MSM in 1999 and has been chief operating officer of the company since 2004. He has served in positions focusing on global operations for more than 20 years.

In the latest quarterly earnings report, Sony reported a loss of $181 million, which the studio attributed, in part, to a decline in home entertainment sales. Singh will be tasked with helping offset flagging homevid sales with international output deals.
