Aron

President / CEO

An American businessman with a background in the hospitality fields of travel, leisure and tourism, Aron took the helm of AMC Entertainment in January 2016 and hit the ground running. Unafraid to ask a lot of questions and willing to roll up his sleeves, he made an immediate splash, negotiating a $1.1 billion deal to buy Georgia-based Carmike Cinemas, transforming the movie-theater company into the country’s biggest exhibitor. The exhibitor industry was squeezed by the theater-subscription program MoviePass, whose subscription business model has been emulated by exhibitors including AMC. He was previously co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, serving as CEO from 2011 to 2013. He also did stints as president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line and chairman and CEO of Vail Resorts.
