TORONTO -- Entertainment One has restructured its U.S. film division, with Dylan Wiley, Patrick McDonough, Ryan Markowitz, Seanna Hore, Sejin Croninger and Walter Schmidt leaving the Canada-based company after a transition period.

After the acquisition of Phase 4 Films for $27 million, Berry Meyerowitz, eOne’s president of U.S. film and distribution, has unveiled his new management team, led by Sean Monson, executive vp finance and operations, and David Richardson, executive vp sales and marketing.

As the U.S. film division aims at more theatrical films with home entertainment and other ancillary platform potential, Meyerowitz has also installed Larry Greenberg as senior vp acquisitions, Ben Means as senior vp label management and Polly Beel as vp marketing.

After the Phase 4 Films acquisition, Meyerowitz now oversees all film distribution in the U.S. for eOne and the company’s North American label as well as kids and family content distribution businesses.
