Industry Moves: Adrian Sexton To Leave Lionsgate For TAG

Now we can fill in the missing initial for TAG Strategic after confirming that the “A” is for Adrian Sexton, who will be leaving his post as VP-digital media at Lionsgate to form a partnership with Ted Cohen and Gary Price. Sexton was a director of Mediapact Capital when it acquired a stake in Lionsgate and has been part of the studio’s transformation over the past six years; duties there included executive director of business development. Why leave a studio he describes as a place where leadership navigated quickly and smartly compared to the “old Spanish galleons”? The answer: the “e” word we’ve heard so much the last couple of days — entrepreneur. No word on whether Lionsgate will be a client of the new firm.
