Stewart Filmscreen has hired Jeffrey L. Thompson as general manager, chief operating officer.
“We are very pleased that Jeff has joined Stewart” said president Grant Stewart. “With more than 30 years’ experience as [a] top-level manager and finance executive, Jeff will strengthen Stewart’s management team and lead the Torrance based California operations.”
Thompson’s past experiences includes top-level finance, operations, and manufacturing leadership. He holds a BS in marketing and minor in economics from California State University at Long Beach, and an MBA in Finance from Loyola Marymount University.
Hiring Thompson is part of Stewart’s overall plan to realign its business to adapt to the changing needs of the marketplace and better leverage its global operations in California, Ohio, Copenhagen, and Singapore. Growth in Asia and expansion of products offered through production facilities in Europe will be aided by Stewart’s new strategic hires, including recent senior leadership appointments in global marketing and Stewart Filmscreen Europe, the company says.
