Epix president and CEO Mark Greenberg is exiting.
Epix executive vice president of programming, strategy and enterprises Monty Sarhan will take the helm in the interim while a new head is sought. The premium channel venture started in 2009 as a partnership between MGM, Lionsgate and Paramount.
Greenberg’s move follows MGM agreeing in April to a $1 billion deal to buy out Viacom and Lionsgate for full ownership.
“We were committed to completing the integration effectively and efficiently,” Greenberg said in a statement. “Having completed the integration effectively and efficiently, it really created a segue for me to say that it’s time for me to tap into my entrepreneurial spirit. I’ve left this company in good hands.”
