We got a formal press release yesterday announcing Ahmad Ouri’s appointment as president of PRN.As our readers know, we were at the PRN Upfront back on Oct. 18 when Ouri’s appointment was announced and had the news up immediately, but if you missed it, see here.
Ouri comes from Technicolor, parent of PRN, where he worked for nine years. He was president of Technicolor Digital Cinema, chief technology officer, and president of the Technicolor Content Services business unit, overseeing worldwide post-production operations. He earlier worked for Philips.
Ouri will oversee all PRN activities and lead the development and strategic growth of the company, which is wholly owned by Technicolor.
“In his nine years of senior management roles within Technicolor, Ahmad has made significant contributions to our strategy, technology and marketing efforts,” says Lanny Raimondo, president of Technicolor’s Entertainment Services Business Group. “He’s a proven leader with deep expertise who will continue building upon PRN’s success.”

The length of time it took PRN to get a press release out on something so simple is a reflection of how dysfunctional the company and likewise the relationship with Tehchnicolor are. Don’t count on changes there.
