Gerry Noble has resigned as Peace Arch Entertainment Group Inc’s CEO, effective immediately.

The US and Canada-based company plans to name a new CEO shortly.

“With the recent sale of its home entertainment division, I believe Peace Arch is now well situated to grow its core businesses of domestic television production and worldwide motion picture licensing,” Noble commented.

“We appreciate the role Gerry has played in helping the company re-focus on its key operations and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours,” Peace Arch chairman Robert Essery added.
