If you think of Hollywood, you are likely to get the images of the stars and the big movies across your mind. But you never see the men working behind the scenes, do you? I am talking about the most successful and also the most experienced executive in Hollywood at the moment. He is none other than Tom Rothman, the ex President and CEO of Fox Filmed Entertainment. Tom is today working as the Chairman of Tristar, a new Sony Pictures banner. But he has spent a major chunk of his career with Fox Studios where he founded Fox Searchlight and served as its Chairman for many years. He has been no less than a Tom Cruise or a James Cameron for the studios for which he has given his time and effort to earn huge profits. In fact, he has combined box office earnings of more than $40 billion under his belt and two of the biggest movies of Hollywood to his credit. These are Titanic and Avatar, both directed by James Cameron.
Industry Tribute is the award that means a lot to Tom Rothman
Tom Rothman has scores of achievement and awards against his name. However, one award that remains closest to his heart is the Industry Tribute that was given to him at the 21st annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. This is a lifetime achievement award given in recognition to the untiring efforts of Tom’s work in the field of motion pictures. The award is given to Tom as he is the most experienced executive man in media entertainment right now.
Make no mistake; Tom Rothman’s name is a guarantee of success today with more than 20 years of experience under his belt. He is today the most sought after executive in the world of entertainment media.
