Panavision Names New President

A veteran television executive has been named as the new president and chief executive at camera and lens developer Panavision Inc. William Campbell will oversee all domestic and foreign operations of the Woodland Hills-based company. He replaces Bob Beitcher, who had been president and CEO for about six year. He is no longer with Panavision. Campbell was most recently president of Discovery Networks, where he was responsible for all aspects of the television division’s 14 channels. Campbell has also had various executive positions in programming and development at ABC, CBS and Warner Brothers Television. Having worked in both the development and creative side of the industry, Campbell understand the needs of the customers and innovations necessary to keep up with their creative demands, said Panavision Chairman Ronald O. Perelman. “Billy’s visionary leadership in the entertainment business ideally suits him to take Panavision into the next phase of our business,” Perelman said. Mark R. Madler
