20th Century Fox has hired Spencer Klein as senior vp, assistant general sales manager.
Klein’s appointment is the first official hire by newly-named Fox domestic distribution president Chris Aronson, to whom Klein will report. Last month, Fox announced that Aronson will succeed Bruce Snyder, who is retiring after 36 years at the studio.
Klein moves to Fox from the movie circuit The Film Group. He has previously supervised domestic sales for the Weinstein Co.’s genre division Dimension Films and has held positions at Loews Cineplex Entertainment, Bow Tie Cinemas, New Line Cinemas and New Yorker Films.
“We are excited to have Spencer join our team,” Aronson said in a statement. “His extensive experience in both film distribution and exhibition will be instrumental in taking the studio to even greater successes as we continue to ramp up our release slate.”
