The German-born executive has been promoted to svp of distribution and will oversee the release of content across all Myriad’s platforms and play a role in acquisition.
Gutberlet previously served as vp of distribution. She will continue to be responsible for sales and distribution of the theatrical slate, which included the hit Margin Call in 2011. She reports to CEO Kirk D’Amico.
The executive joined Myriad as director of sales administration from The Weinstein Company’s business affairs department. Prior to moving to LA she was an account manager for TBS International in Frankfurt.
D’Amico and Gutberlet will travel to Cannes next month where they will screen Ry Russo-Young’s Sundance winner Nobody Walks (pictured) starring John Krasinski and A Common Man starring Ben Kingsley.
“I am very pleased to announce this well-deserved promotion,” D’Amico said. “Lisa is a detail-oriented and focused executive with excellent relationships in the international marketplace. She has been invaluable to Myriad’s growth since joining us in 2007.”
