Eyeworks announced today that Eyeworks Distribution's Executive Director of Business Development Jeff Goldman has been elevated to Co-Managing Director. Goldman will work along side Co-Managing Director and COO of Eyeworks USA, Ross Weintraub, overseeing all distribution related business and legal matters within the Eyeworks Group and Worldwide. Weintraub will continue to oversee all financial and employee related matters.
Reinout Oerlemans, CEO and founder of Eyeworks, said: "Jeff has been an integral part of taking our Distribution outlet towards its current success and his relationships both within Eyeworks, and externally, have helped us forge new paths and make great headway as a group. Many Eyeworks' formats have been successfully adapted internationally such as Test the Nation, Ticket To The Tribes and Beat the Blondes. As a result of Jeff's efforts, Eyeworks Distribution is now also very successful with formats such as Who Wants To Marry My Son' (locally adapted in 13 countries with very good ratings in Southern Europe and South America) and Obese (aka Extreme MakeOver: Weight-Loss Edition) which format and finished versions has been sold to 125 countries.'
"I look forward to working more closely with Jeff in the coming years, further building Eyeworks Distribution along with our strong sales team and support staff. Jeff brings a certain enthusiasm and strong business sense to the department and is an invaluable asset to our team', said Weintraub.
"I am very proud of the success Eyeworks Distribution and our team has had over the past two years since Ross and I started to build the foundation in the USA office. I am excited to continue with Eyeworks and am looking forward to our further expansion", said Goldman. Jeff Goldman has been with Eyeworks since 2008 when he worked alongside Oerlemans in the USA as Manager of Business Development. In 2010, he and Weintraub were tasked to open and start the US office of Eyeworks Distribution.
