Leading event cinema distributor Fathom Events is growing its executive leadership team with the appointment of Tom Bracken as VP of marketing, Nancy Silverstone as VP of programming and Daren Miller as VP of business affairs and strategy.
Bracken has over 25 years of experience in entertainment, interactive gaming, technology, clean energy and new media industries. As VP of marketing, he will be responsible for leading the strategy of Fathom’s advertising, event marketing, digital marketing, branding, sponsorships and PR practices. Prior to joining Fathom Events, Bracken led marketing for Fortune 1000 and start-up companies including Evolution Digital, Comcast Technology Solutions, Technicolor and DIRECTV.
Silverstone will be responsible for developing and establishing distribution strategies and acquiring content for Fathom Events. Most recently, she was the principal at the consulting firm she launched, Millstone Partners, LLC, where she consulted on several television and film content projects for a variety of media within worldwide distribution, OTT and independent film production. Prior to that, she served as VP of program acquisitions for Starz Entertainment, where she oversaw the negotiation of licensing deals with independent and major studios for first-run and library titles, library buyouts, co-productions, premieres and restoration deals. She also led initiatives in international programming and distribution at HBO and Fox Lorber.
Miller has been with Fathom Events since 2014, where he has been a significant contributor to the company’s content growth strategy, negotiated content licensing and managed Fathom’s domestic and international content deals. In his new role, Miller will retain his business affairs responsibilities as well as partner with the leadership team to establish corporate and organizational strategies domestically and abroad. He has previously held leadership positions at CenturyLink, Fox/Liberty Networks, Liberty Media Corporation and Tele-Communications, Inc. (TCI).
