Sony Pictures Names CTO

Sony Pictures Entertainment announced Monday that Mitch Singer was named chief technology officer for the TV- and movie-production studio.

In that role, Singer will be responsible for the studio’s “integrated media technology strategy,” and as part of that, he will be tasked with exploring new formats for products and services.

Singer, who was previously head of Sony Pictures’ digital-policy group, will also represent the studio in industry forums and lead anti-piracy efforts for digital media. He will report to Beth Berke, senior executive vice president and chief administrative officer.

Singer joined Sony Pictures’ litigation group in 1990 and has served as legal counsel in various divisions of the studio.
