Michael E Rosenberg will depart his post as president of eOne Films US on October 31 to pursue other interests. Subsequent changes to the US leadership are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Rosenberg joined eOne in 2005 when the company acquired Koch Entertainment, where he had served as president. 

During his tenure as preisdent he has operated eOne’s US home entertainment division out of New York reporting to president of eOne Films North America David Reckziegel and held corresponding responsibilities with the group’s music distribution business under eOne US CEO Michael Koch.

“After 26 years with Koch and eOne, it’s now time for me to take on other challenges,” said Rosenberg. “I am very proud of our team in the US and the business we’ve built together, and I’ve really enjoyed my time as part of eOne.

“It’s been a pleasure to have been part of such a talented group during what has been a transformational period for film and music distribution in the US. I leave the company in good hands and look forward to opening a new chapter in my life.”

“Over his many years with eOne, Michael has played an instrumental role in building the US home entertainment business and developing the company’s digital strategy in the US,” said Reckziegel. “We want to thank Michael for his many contributions over the years and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.”

“Michael built Koch Entertainment (now eOne US) with me to become the leading independent music distribution company in North America,” said Koch. “His fast ascent from West Coast salesman to president in 2001, and his building our US film and video business from the ground up since 1999, was vital to our phenomenal success and growth over the last 27 years. To say he will be sorely missed would be an understatement.”

Dylan Wiley continues to lead the company’s US theatrical film marketing and sales activities reporting to Reckziegel, who oversees all North American Film operations.
