Lions Gate Entertainment has signed its senior managers to long-term contracts and appointed James Keegan to the new position of chief administrative officer.

The company has re-signed Lions Gate Films Releasing President Tom Ortenberg, Lions Gate Films president of production Michael Paseornek and Lions Gate Home Entertainment and acquisitions president Peter Block to new multiyear deals, effective immediately. The four executives report directly to Lions Gate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer.

In a statement, Lions Gate said stability in the executive suite was further enhanced because Lions Gate Television production president Kevin Beggs signed a new multiyear deal as part of his promotion earlier this year and Lions Gate Television president of worldwide distribution Ira Bernstein was recruited by the Company to a long-term deal late last year.
