Icon Film Distribution has announced major changes to the structure of its theatrical department, including redundancies.
In a statement released to the media, the distribution company confirmed the roles of Publicity/Promotions Manager and Production and Traffic Manager were no longer required.
In other changes, Head of Cinemas Nick Hayes has been promoted to Head of Theatrical Operations and will oversee the theatrical department alongside Tracey Whybrew who has been promoted to Head of Theatrical Markets.
Two new roles have been created in the theatrical marketing department; Marcoms Manager and Creative Services Manager.
Icon plans to fill these roles internally.
CEO of Icon and Dendy Greg Hughes said, "Icon has a diverse and dynamic slate in the next 18 months and I am very pleased to announce this innovative new approach to managing our theatrical business. I look forward to seeing Nick and Tracy's team execute our releases and build stronger partnerships with exhibitors."
Icon was contacted for further comment regarding the restructure but a representative of the company advised they had nothing to add at this time.
