Sony merges Pictures & TV divisions
Sony Pictures TV is merging its international television operations, which will include international TV operations, channels, home entertainment and sales activity.
In a note written to staff members, Sony Pictures TV Chairman, Mike Hopkins said, the change was to “create a stronger and more agile organisation, one that is better able to pivot and capitalise on opportunities in a fast-changing and increasingly complex global marketplace.”
He added, “Broadly speaking, the new territory management model brings together, under a single local leader, businesses that have been historically separate. With this approach, we gain a more efficient structure giving regional leaders, along with their direct reports in each country, the ability to make smart, strategic business decisions, while keeping local consumers at the core of what we do.”
