NEON announced today that Andrew Brown has been promoted to President of Digital Distribution for the company. Under his leadership, the Academy Award®-winning studio launched its home entertainment division and formed DECAL in 2021, a home entertainment distribution company. Brown, who manages NEON’s award-winning library, also oversees the very popular annual NEON FYC DVD box set and the direct-to-consumer digital portal NEON Cinema. Brown has served as SVP of Digital Strategy, Marketing and Distribution for NEON since 2017 and will also continue to serve as Co-President of DECAL.
“Andrew’s knowledge of the players, the platforms and the history of cinema all converge to make him a one-of-a-kind executive,” said NEON CEO and Founder, Tom Quinn. “He’s been here from the beginning and we look forward to continuing to grow NEON together.”
During his 20+ years in the film and TV industry, Brown has been at the forefront of the digital video business, starting with Rainbow Media (now Altice) and INDEMAND. Starting in 2006, he took over the expansion and development of Time Warner Cable’s Video On Demand service, making it into one of the nation’s largest streaming video platforms. After Time Warner Cable’s acquisition by Charter in 2016, he joined NEON as the SVP of Digital Distribution & Strategy. In 2021, alongside his role at NEON, he became Co-President of DECAL, a new film label and full-service home entertainment distributor for various studios, including NEON, Bleecker Street and XYZ.
