Lionsgate has promoted Ron Schwartz to president and general manager of Lionsgate home entertainment sales and distribution.

The move underlines Schwartz’ contribution to the Lionsgate library of 15,000 titles producing a $1 billion-a-year home entertainment business, the mini-studio said Wednesday.

“Ron is a gifted and experienced executive who has helped guide our home entertainment business to several years of sustained and profitable growth,” said Lionsgate co-COO and motion picture group president Steve Beeks.

The promotion also comes as the mini-studio looks to distribute its product across a growing range of global digital platforms.

Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 were major recent home entertainment releases.

The mini-studio said it achieved a near-10 percent market share in calendar year 2012 in the home entertainment arena.
