Women in Entertainment 2010 - Power 100 List
Her devotion to work may mean it’s something of a surprise that movies never were Kirkpatrick’s dream job: A
gymnastics coach in her youth, she initially moved from Virginia to Los Angeles in hope of landing a job in sports marketing, only to be scooped up by Warner Bros. One of the first hires Rob Friedman made when he teamed with Patrick Wachsberger in 2007 to launch Summit was Kirkpatrick, a staffer from his Paramount days. It’s hardly surprising as Kirkpatrick is tough, shrewd and — after a couple of initial mistakes at Summit — brilliant. Case in point: Summit’s vampire phenomenon The Twilight Saga, whose latest installment, Eclipse, has earned more than $690 million worldwide. Summit also boasts this year’s best picture Oscar winner, The Hurt Locker. Her top moment, though? Meeting George Harrison. “It’s hard to recover from your first Beatle,” she says.
