MoviePass expands exhibitor relations team with three new hires
Movie theatre subscription service MoviePass announced the addition of three new members to its exhibitor relations team. The team, spearheaded by senior VP of exhibitor relations Bernadette McCabe, added Joe Whyte as director of exhibitor relations, Dean Moore as exhibitor relations financial analyst, and Kevin Brown as exhibitor relations associate.
Whyte joins MoviePass from Twentieth Century Fox, where he previously served as director of sales. Before Fox he served as a sales representative at The Walt Disney Studios, and also held positions at Focus Features and FilmDistrict. In his newly appointed role, Whyte will oversee relationships throughout the country, working with a variety of movie theatre exhibitors to drive strategic initiatives and encourage collaboration with MoviePass.
“Joe comes to us having spent his entire career on the studio side, where he developed great relationships with exhibitors all over the country,” said McCabe. “Those relationships and his experience are incredibly valuable additions to MoviePass as we work to grow our influence and engagement within the exhibition community and entertainment industry as a whole. Together with Dean and Kevin, this expansion of MoviePass’ exhibitor relations team will be key in helping us find new ways to transform and redefine the movie theatre experience.”
Moore, formerly a financial analyst at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, will aid the exhibitor relations team in forecasting exhibitor payments, analyzing payment trends and creating reporting materials. Brown joins MoviePass from Salesforce, where he served as a strategic innovation associate, and will oversee all aspects of implementation with exhibitor partners, including technological and marketing support.
“We’re extremely excited to welcome these additions to the team,” said MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe. “Forming mutually beneficial relationships with movie theatres remains one of our top priorities at MoviePass. Having a strong exhibitor relations team not only ensures the success of these partnerships but also helps grow the network of theatres and films that are available to our customers on the MoviePass platform.”
