Hong Kong – Celestial Pictures has chosen its new CEO, to fill the position vacated by William Pfeiffer upon the March 2008 expiration of his contract. A source at Celestial would only confirm that a new CEO had been named internally and that a formal announcement would be made in due course. Celestial’s new CEO is widely believed to be Ross A. Pollack, senior vice president at Sony Pictures Television. Neither Pollack nor SPT were willing to comment on that speculation. Pfeiffer left Celestial to pursue other business interests and is now heading up Tiger Gate, a Lionsgate-backed channel and content business.
