Fox Searchlight Pictures EVP of distribution Sheila DeLoach announced today that Frank Rodriguez has joined the specialty label as SVP assistant general sales manager. Rodriguez joins Searchlight after 14 years at DreamWorks SKG and Paramount Pictures. DeLoach said Rodriguez’ passion for independent film “is a perfect fit” for Fox Searchlight. The move represents a homecoming for Rodriguez, who first worked at 20th Century Fox in 1982. In 1990 he was promoted to branch manager and relocated to New York. In 1995 Rodriguez joined Fox Searchlight as VP of sales, eastern division, and worked on the division’s first movie The Brothers McMullen. He later joined DreamWorks SKG in 1997 which subsequently was acquired by Paramount.
