Chairman / CEO

Chernin Entertainment scored a true hit with “Ford v Ferrari,” which earned $225 million worldwide and placed well at the March 2020 Oscars, coming away with a nomination for best picture and two wins (film and sound editing). The following April, Chernin completed a multi-year first-look feature deal with Netflix, which also acquired its “Fear Street” trilogy based on R.L. Stine’s books.

In response to COVID-19 and injustice-related protests, Chernin’s businesses set up a matching program for employee donations to pandemic and Black Lives Matter-related philanthropic causes that raised over $2 million in 2020.
