President, Domestic Distribution
As President, Domestic Distribution for Paramount Pictures, Kyle Davies is responsible for overseeing the studio’s domestic theatrical sales, in-theatre marketing, non-theatrical sales, and distribution operations.
A 30-year industry veteran with experience in both exhibition and distribution, Davies joined Paramount after serving as President of Worldwide Distribution for Relativity Media, where he played an instrumental role in the company’s evolution from a financing and producing entity to a full-fledged studio. With the creation of a joint venture company between Relativity Media and Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp in 2014, Davies’ responsibilities expanded to include oversight of both companies’ domestic and international distribution strategies and collaboration with their foreign output partners.
Davies also served Relativity as President of Theatrical Distribution following the company’s acquisition of Overture Films’ marketing and distribution assets. Before that, he was Executive Vice President of Theatrical Distribution for Overture.
Prior to Overture, Davies was Senior Vice President of Distribution at Paramount, having joined the studio from DreamWorks Pictures, where he managed the release of such film as “DREAMGIRLS,” “GLADIATOR,” “SAVING PRIVATE RYAN,” “AMERICAN BEAUTY,” “SHREK” and “SHREK 2.”
Davies began his entertainment career in exhibition working for major theater chains National Amusements and General Cinema.
