TORONTO – David Reckziegel, head of Entertainment One’s North American film business, is leaving the Canadian producer and distributor.
Reckziegel will leave the house on May 31 to launch a new venture, which will provide financing and advisory services to media and entertainment companies.
He joined eOne in 2007 after it acquired his company, Seville Films.
“I’m excited to launch a new venture that combines what I’ve learned over the past 25-plus years in the entertainment and investment banking businesses,” Reckziegel said in a statement on Thursday.
His departure follows eOne on April 1 launching Seville International as an indie sales division of Entertainment One Films International, to be headed up by Anick Poirier.
