Less than a month after it was announced that David Bishop would exit as president of Sony‘s Home Entertainment division, his replacement was named today. Man Jit Singh is taking over once Bishop’s contract ends in March, the studio said Monday. Until today, Singh was CEO of Multi Screen Media Pvt. Ltd., the operating company that handles Sony Pictures Television’s TV networks in India. “Man Jit is a savvy global executive with a long track record of success at Sony Pictures, having built our Indian TV channels into high-performance, high-margin businesses. I am confident in his vision for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and his ability to provide strong leadership for the division as the marketplace continues to evolve,” said Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton in a statement. Singh will report to Lynton and co-chairman Amy Pascal. While he is taking over Home Entertainment, Singh is not immediately leaving the Indian market, where he has been in overseeing Sony’s TV business since 2009. The studio said the former management consultant will continue as Non-Executive Chairman at MSM during the transition. Former MSM COO N.P. Singh has been appointed CEO and will report to Andy Kaplan, President, Worldwide Networks, Sony Pictures Television.
