Aron

President / CEO

Under Aron’s leadership, in 2018 AMC had its best year at the box office in the company’s 99-year history, scoring record earnings at the same time. It also turned the MoviePass concept into a sustainable model with AMC Stubs A-List. Launched in June 2018, the monthly movie subscription plan reached 900,000 by the following summer. The former CEO of Norwegian Cruise Lines and current co-owner of NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers, Aron took over the exhibitor in January 2016 and embarked on a $3 billion spending spree, acquiring Georgia-based Carmike Cinemas and Odeon & UCI Cinemas and Nordic Cinema Group in Europe. Alas, along with the growth, there has been some pruning: In August, 35 employees were laid off as part of a previously announced cost-cutting plan.
