Nick Taussig has been promoted to the new role of managing director at Revolver Entertainment.

He had spent three years as director of production of Revolver’s in house unit Gunslinger Films as well as deputy managing director of Revolver Entertainment UK.

In his new role, Taussig will oversee the management and implementation of “a new strategic focus”, which will involve increasing Gunslinger’s co-production output in 2013.

On his new appointment, Taussig said: “I’m looking forward to developing the co-production slate, ensuring that not only Gunslinger’s films but all the films Gunslinger co-produces and Revolver distributes are the very best they can be, and are distributed with Revolver’s trademark dynamism, innovation and flair.”

Revolver Entertainment’s CEO, Justin Marciano, commented: “I’m very pleased to appoint Nick in this key position as we strive for growth in the changing market place.

“His unique skills and experience across distribution, production, co-production and pre-buys are central to the company’s future strategy of full vertical integration, which will see production and distribution working hand-in-hand.”
