Ceylan also negotiated recent renewals for home entertainment distribution and replication agreements with Fox and Cinram.

“Akin has been a key contributor to our growth in recent years and, as COO of the home entertainment group, he will help guide the continued expansion of our business as we serve a broadening spectrum of traditional and digital platforms,” said Lionsgate home entertainment president Ron Schwartz.
