MICHAEL KATCHMAN

Producer

 

Mr. Michael Katchman U.S.A has a lengthy
and successful career in home video sales, marketing, and acquisitions dating back to the early 1980s, Mike's resume begins with sales management positions at Congress Video Group
and then VidAmerica before he was recruited by
Orion Pictures. After a brief period in sales Mike was quickly moved into management where he flourished during the golden era that saw Orion setting the pace with such releases as Dances With Wolves and Silence of the Lambs among others. It was at this point that Mike was already trying on other hats within the organization leading to involvement with film acquisitions as well
as marketing. Rising to the position
of Senior Vice President of Sales, Mike was eventually responsible for all entertainment sales
in the US and Canada before Orion was sold
to MGM, where he filled a similar role until being drafted by Lionsgate. In three very productive years with Lionsgate Mike contributed to revenues that rose from $32 million to $110 million before
being lured away to First Look Studios where
he was central to an even more dramatic
500% increase in sales from 2004-07.
