Tom Rothman is Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Motion Picture Group. In that role, Rothman oversees all of the studio’s motion picture production and distribution activities worldwide. Rothman joined Sony Pictures in late 2013 as Chairman of TriStar Productions. Previously, he served as Chairman and CEO of Fox Filmed Entertainment from 2000-2012. He left FFE in 2013, following the most profitable decade in the company’s history, and after its split from parent News Corporation and reorganization into 21st Century Fox. In that capacity, Rothman oversaw one the world’s largest producers and distributors of motion picture and television product, including Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., Fox Searchlight (which Rothman founded in 1994 and which won the 2008 Best Picture Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire), Blue Sky Animation and Twentieth Century Fox Television. Together those entities have yearly revenues over $8 billion, operate in more than 70 countries worldwide, and have been at the forefront of the digital media revolution.
