20th Century Fox Film has promoted veteran Paul Hoffman to EVP Business Affairs, and he will immediately assume oversight of all day-to-day business affairs for the film division, working with production president Emma Watts. He also will continue to manage the business affairs for Fox’s overall deals with Chernin Entertainment and Paul Feig.
An almost-20-year veteran of Fox and most recently SVP Business Affairs, he will report to Victoria Rossellini, Senior EVP Worldwide Business & Legal Affairs and Strategic Financing.
“Paul is the consummate professional, who has remarkably strong relationships within the studio as well as in the talent community,” she said. “He is a skilled negotiator who brings a collaborative approach to dealmaking. This promotion is not only well deserved but reflects the great work he has been doing for Fox over the years.”
