Mark Kresser, formerly V.P. Of Distribution for K2, has been promoted to President. According to Bob Kresser, K2 CEO, “the promotion is based upon Mark’s outstanding performance over the past several years in both theatrical and ancillary distribution for a growing library of films, and his expanded responsibilities on the production and management side of the business.” A graduate of U.C. Berkeley, he joined K2 in 2000 after working in the hospitality industry in Aspen, Colorado.
At the same time, Ed Capelle has been elevated to Sr. V.P. of Distribution, a promotion “well deserved considering his major contribution to the successful distribution and marketing of K2’s film library over the last 10 years”, said Kresser. Capelle began his career in the Giant Screen industry in 1987, when he was named theater manager of the CA Science Center’s IMAX Theater. After leaving CSC, Ed joined Destination Cinema, eventually being promoted to President.
