Deadline to receive an internal memo from Rich to his colleagues:
23 years ago, when I was 22 years old, I walked into the glass building as a marketing trainee in international drama marketing. Of course, I already thought that I had an internship in Jeff Goldstein’s Western Distribution department when I was 18 years old, and then worked several times in the European marketing office in London. I am ready to welcome the world! I remember sitting in my cubicle making my own stationery, just saying that “marketing” was my title because I was worried that if there was an “intern” label, no one would take me seriously.
The rest is history.
After more than 450 campaigns, the following points stand out:
I have been surrounded and supported by the best executives in the business, and I am deeply grateful for their leadership, partnership and collaboration.
I can’t believe how lucky it is to work with so many of today’s most surprising and outstanding artists. My passion for filmmakers and their artistic creation is limitless. I have always been in awe of the responsibilities they have entrusted to me. They have conveyed their many years of vision to the audience. The required leap of faith and trust is being humbled and will never be lost to me. They shaped my worldview, taught me to take bold, daring adventures, and encouraged me to be fearless when I believe in the power of stories.
I am proud to lead the most dynamic and talented marketing team in the business. We work hard to break the limit, break records, and dream bigger. You are all excellent. I will always be your biggest supporter, loudest cheerleader, and true believer in achieving your goals. As your business develops, please unswervingly understand that you have unparalleled creativity, unparalleled strategy and innovation capabilities, and your ability to create cultural moments that stop the world and attract attention.
