Alcon Marketing Chief Richard Ingber Steps Down

Alcon Entertainment’s Richard Ingber, the company’s longtime president of worldwide marketing and distribution, will leave at the end of the year.

He will resume his Richard Ingber Entertainment marketing firm and will consult on Alcon’s upcoming “Hillsong — Let Hope Rise,” opening April 1, and the rebooted “Point Break,” which opens July 31.

Ingber joined Alcon in 2000 as a consultant on “My Dog Skip” and became head of marketing and distribution in 2007. He worked with Warner Bros., which releases all Alcon titles, on campaigns for “The Blind Side,” the two “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films, “The Book of Eli,” the two “Dolphin Tale” films, “P.S. I Love You,” “Prisoners” and “Insomnia.”

“Richard has been instrumental in our company’s history from almost the very beginning,” said Alcon toppers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. “He’s been more than a creative marketing executive, he’s been a tremendous collaborator and true friend. We’re thrilled to continue working with him as a consultant and wish him the very best in resuming his independent company.”
