Alcon marketing exec Richard Ingber is departing his post after 14 years with the WB-based company and seven years as its President of Worldwide Marketing & Distribution. Ingber, who also produced Alcon’s family hit Dolphin Tale, will resume his eponymous Richard Ingber Entertainment marketing firm while staying on as consultant on Alcon’s Hillsong – Let Hope Rise and their Point Break reboot.
Ingber first joined Alcon as a marketing consultant in 200 on family pic My Dog Skip. He assumed the marketing and distribution President title in 2007. During his run with Alcon and Warner Bros. he led campaigns for films including P.S. I Love You, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Christopher Nolan’s Insomnia, The Blind Side, The Book Of Eli, and Prisoners. Earlier this year Alcon took a huge hit on the Johnny Depp sci-fier Transcendence, which opened in April at #4 with just $10.8 million domestic.
