“With this new leadership structure, we have already seen increased collaboration and the generation of great ideas driving our business forward,” said Keith Le Goy, president, worldwide distribution, Sony Pictures Entertainment, in a memo. “From innovations in how we work across SPHE windows to developing new revenue share models around the world with AXN, we can already see meaningful early wins.”

SPT will confirm additional territory managers for other countries, such as the UK, at a later time.
