Chris Aronson has been promoted to executive vice president of domestic distribution and general sales manager at 20th Century Fox.

In the newly expanded role, he'll be responsible for all theatrical distribution duties in the U.S. and Canada. He'll also oversee the company's field offices in L.A., New York and Toronto.

Aronson, who previously served as senior vice president of distribution, will continue to report to Bruce Snyder, president of domestic distribution.

A 30-year industry veteran, Aronson joined Fox in 2005. He came to the studio from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where he served as executive vice president of distribution, responsible for all of MGM’s theatrical distribution activities in North America.

Previously, he was a senior vice president of Rentrak Corporation’s theatrical division, which provides comprehensive box office data collection, analysis and reporting for the film industry.  Before that Aronson held senior positions at Destination Films, Signature Theatres, Columbia Pictures, Vestron Pictures, New World Pictures and Universal Pictures.      

 “Chris has been a key member of our Distribution family since he joined the Company.  His formidable combination of experience and insights into our ever-evolving business, have been invaluable," Snyder said. "I’m so pleased to recognize his achievements, as we continue to tackle the challenges and maximize the many opportunities that lay ahead."
