Clark

President, Distribution

Clark has been atop UPI since 2011. Based in London, he helped Universal set up an autonomous distribution operation in 2007, in place of the company’s original joint venture with Paramount. With him at the helm, Universal crossed the $2 billion mark in international box office for the first time in 2013. Two years later, it became the first studio to rake in over $4.5 billion internationally, on the strength of titles including “Jurassic World” and “Fast and Furious 7,” two of only eight releases ever to gross more than $1 billion overseas. Looking ahead, “Fast & Furious 9,” Paul Greengrass’ “News of the World” and newest Bond film “No Time to Die” should surely keep the wheels on. Previously, he spent 14 years in marketing and distribution at Columbia/Sony. He plans to step down from his post and transition into a consulting role in August 2020.
