"The international theatrical marketplace offers tremendous growth opportunities for Lionsgate, and Andrew is ideally qualified to help us continue to build our momentum around the world," said Wachsberger and Friedman.  "He is a seasoned business executive who brings multidisciplinary expertise in all aspects of film acquisitions, coproduction, cofinancing, marketing and distribution to the continued growth of our worldwide feature film operations."
