MUMBAI: Former Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Group president Mark Zoradi will join the board of directors of newly formed Rave Cinemas, LLC.

Zoradi’s 30-year career at Disney spanned the television, home entertainment and film businesses. He began in 1980 as marketing manager for Walt Disney Home Video during the beginning of the home entertainment boom.  From there he moved into television as marketing director for the Disney Channel, also in its early development at the time.

Rave Motion Pictures president and CEO Thomas W. Stephenson, Jr. said, "Rave is extremely fortunate to have Mark Zoradi join the board of our newly formed company. His long career at Disney and experience in all facets of the entertainment industry will provide valuable insight and counsel.  His track record as a leader and innovator will be invaluable as we move forward."

Zoradi added, "I am so pleased to be joining the board of Rave Cinemas and serve with the TowerBrook partners, Chairman Charley Moss, and our CEO Tom Stephenson and his team.  The new entity is well positioned within the exhibition community to excel in providing the best cinema-going experience to movie audiences. My longtime experience on the studio side of the business will be a complement to the existing team."
