Cineworld has named Thomas Song its chief financial officer overseeing the group’s finance and accounting management and with a leadership role in the company’s strategic planning and analytics.
“After an extensive search, we are proud to announce Tom Song as our new CFO,” said Eduardo Acuna, the CEO of Cineworld. He was named earlier this year as the global exhibitor emerged from bankruptcy and its previous owners and executives led by former chief Moody Greidinger exited. The company has been pretty quiet since.
“Tom provides our team with a history of achievement and true insights into financial management, analytics, and strategic planning. With this background along with our talented finance team, he is the perfect leader to deliver a strategic financial vision that will drive growth and success for Cineworld Group,” Acuna said.
Song most recently served as CFO of global hotel management company Aimbridge Hospitality. Previously, he was chief financial officer of publicly traded restaurant company Dine Brands Global, overseeing strategic and financial management. He was also a senior executive at Choice Hotels International.
Cineworld Group operates the Regal, Cineworld, Picturehouse, Planet, and Cinema City brands and is the second largest global exhibitor after AMC.
