Trio of Promotions within MarVista Entertainment


MarVista Entertainment has elevated Hannah Pillemer to the role of head of creative affairs, alongside two other promotions within the team.

Pillemer has spearheaded the company’s indie film slate and now adds network television and digital content to her responsibilities. She will also be managing a slate of some 60-plus films per year, as well as series and digital content across a wide range of genres and budgets.

Larry Grimaldi, former VP of creative affairs, has been upped to senior VP of creative affairs. Todd Murata was promoted to VP of creative affairs.

“Hannah, Larry and Todd have all made significant contributions to MarVista, earning themselves these well-deserved promotions,” commented Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista. “Since joining MarVista over five years ago, Hannah has proven herself to be a talented and dedicated executive, capable of leading the development and production of an impressive slate of content, and, among other genres, under her direction, we have become the leading supplier of holiday movies. Garnering the respect and support of network executives as well as the creative community at large, Hannah is well supported by Larry and Todd, whose dedication and passion have instilled confidence in our partners and clients and led to an expansion in the responsibilities of their positions.”
