“First, the board is very pleased that Tim Warner has extended his contract as CEO of Cinemark, ensuring that we will continue to benefit from his global growth and management experience,” stated Lee Roy Mitchell, chairman of the board. “In addition, Robert Copple, as CFO, has emerged as a key leader of Cinemark, contributing to its strong financial performance and helping implement some great strategic acquisitions and partnerships. The board is proud to announce that Mr. Copple is being promoted to president and chief operating officer of Cinemark. Mr. Copple will work closely with Mr. Warner and the entire management team to integrate into this role after we have identified and hired a new chief financial officer.” 

“As CFO, Robert’s outstanding performance in helping design and implement Cinemark’s global strategy over the years has proven vital to our success,” Warner commented. “In his new leadership role, Robert will remain engaged in the day-to-day operations of the company and will be more available to help execute global strategic initiatives. Specifically, Robert will direct the efforts of our domestic company’s senior management team, while working more directly and on a broader basis with Valmir Fernandes, president of Cinemark International, on strategic initiatives such as FLIX Media and alternative content.”

Cinemark operates 475 theatres with 5,504 screens in 40 U.S. states, Brazil, Argentina and 10 other Latin American countries, as of Sept. 30, 2013.
