Plano-based Cinemark Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CNK) has named industry veteran Mark Zoradi to succeed Tim Warner as CEO effective Aug. 24.

Warner, after a nearly 20-year career at Cinemark and more than a 50-year career in the movie theatre industry, has been named as Cinemark’s executive vice-chairman.

“I am honored to become a part of the Cinemark team,” said Zoradi. “Working together with the board and senior management, I look forward to all we will accomplish together. Theatrical exhibition continues to drive the economic engine of the motion picture business and Cinemark’s global operations are particularly well-positioned in this ever-evolving industry.”

Zoradi, 61, is a seasoned entertainment industry executive, most recently serving as the chief operating officer of Dreamworks Animation SKG Inc. Prior to his post at Dreamworks, Zoradi served as the president and chief operating officer of Dick Cook Studios, a new media and entertainment start-up company. During his 30 year career at Disney he served in a variety of executive positions including Home Entertainment, Disney Channel, Television, Worldwide Theatrical Distribution/Marketing, and as The President of the Motion Picture Group.

Warner joined Cinemark in 1996 as the president of Cinemark International and developed and established a successful theatrical exhibition operation in 14 countries. Warner has also served the exhibition industry as President and CEO of NATO of California/Nevada and as General Chairman of NATO/ShoWest. He is a member of many industry groups and associations and is the recipient of numerous industry distinctions including the ShoWest 2000 International Exhibitor of the Year and the NATO/ShoWest 1989 Exhibitor of the Year.
