Dolby Engages Esteemed Motion Picture Executive Sid Ganis to Expand Relationships with Industry's Creative Leaders

Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced it has engaged Sid Ganis to support its cinema business and expand relationships with the industry's creative leaders. Ganis, who most recently served as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will advise senior management on a variety of initiatives to better serve the creative, production, and exhibition communities.

Ganis is one of the most recognized and respected motion picture executives in recent history. He has held various global corporate and strategic positions at Sony Pictures Entertainment, including president of worldwide marketing for Columbia TriStar, vice chairman of Columbia Pictures, and president of marketing and distribution for Columbia Pictures, as well as key posts at Lucasfilm, Warner Bros., Paramount, and Twentieth Century Fox.

"Sid is a globally respected executive with a star-studded past and decades of experience," said Ramzi Haidamus, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Dolby. "Sid brings deep, long-standing relationships, a record of achievement, and proven creative instincts to Dolby. We look forward to Sid's contributions and guidance as we work with creative partners to innovate and deliver new experiences to the market."

“Dolby is a special company which has had a profound impact on cinema,” said Ganis. “I’m thrilled to be part of an effort to revolutionize the movie experience again. I believe the right innovations make cinema magical and look forward to applying my background and enthusiasm to Dolby’s efforts.”

In addition to serving as Academy president, Ganis has served four terms as first vice president and has been a member of the AMPAS Board of Governors representing the public relations branch of the Academy. He has also sat on the boards of directors for Marvel Entertainment, Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, and the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

Ganis was born and raised in New York and attended Brooklyn College.
