Congrats to Paramount exec marketing/publicity vp Mike Vollman for snagging the twin posts of exec vp marketing for MGM/UA and marketing president for United Artists. MGM chairperson Mary Parent did the hiring.
Variety‘s Michael Fleming reported this morning that Vollman informed his Par bosses last night. Fleming adds that since Vollman “worked closely with Terry Press at DreamWorks, the hire will only accelerate speculation that she is in line for the top post, which has been the rumor for months.”
Vollman will immediately begin working with Parent and UA topper Paula Wagner on Valkyrie, Jim Sheridan’s Brothers, Perfect Getaway and How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
