David Garrett is stepping down as president of Summit International following the merger of Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment. Garrett will remain at Summit to assist in the transition. Lionsgate and Summit international divisions will operate as separate entities pending post-merger reorganization of the international executive structure. Lionsgate Film Group Co-Chairmen Patrick Wachsberger and Rob Friedman praised Garrett and said they “fully support his desire to pursue new opportunities.” Garrett has been with Summit since he partnered with Wachsberger and Bob Hayward when they took over Summit Entertainment Group in November 1993.
