I’m told that Paramount’s EVP of integrated marketing and national publicity Michael Vollman is jumping to MGM to become EVP of worldwide marketing as well as take on the title of prez of worldwide marketing for United Artists. He’s now the senior marketing guy overseeing both studios, reporting to chairman of MGM worldwide motion picture group Mary Parent as well as to UA CEO Paula Wagner. Meanwhile, United Artists prez of worldwide marketing and publicity Dennis Rice is exiting the studio as well as MGM prez of worldwide marketing Perry Stahman. Rice has been at UA since April 2007 after leaving Disney’s movie division as senior vice president of publicity. Stahman has been at MGM since April 2006 after coming over from 20th Century Fox where he was SVP for creative advertising. (FYI, I filed this very early AM but a website crash prevented it from being posted.)
