Ascent Media Group splits into two divisions

Ascent Media Group (AMG) is reorganizing its structure by creating two global operating divisions — Creative Services and Network Services.

As part of this restructuring, chief executive officer Ken Williams and chief technology officer Gavin Schutz will be leaving the company. Day-to-day management of the company and execution of AMG's global strategy will now be the responsibility of AMG's management committee. This committee is composed of Scott Davis, president of network services; Robert Solomon, president of creative services; George Platisa, chief financial officer; and William Niles, general counsel. The AMG management committee will report directly to Bill Fitzgerald, who continues in his position as AMG's chairman.

The AMG Creative Services facilities in London, that performs work for the TV, film and advertising industries, will consolidate into the global Creative Services division. AMG will also consolidate its global Media Management Services unit into the Creative Services and Network Services divisions along customer and service lines. This is consistent with the rest of the industry of companies creating and managing entertainment content worldwide.

AMG's Networks Division will continue to operate as a global organization that provides outsourced solutions for media management, content distribution and connectivity. Systems integration and consulting capabilities round out the division's service offering.
