AMC Entertainment Holdings, which operates AMC movie theaters, has named Starwood Hotels & Resorts CEO Adam Aron as its new CEO and president Tuesday, tapping a seasoned executive with experience in hospitality amid industry challenges brought on by streaming and home theater technology.
AMC's previous CEO, Gerry Lopez, resigned in August to run hotel chain Extended Stay America. Aron replaces Craig Ramsey, who has served as interim CEO since Lopez's departure. Ramsey will remain AMC’s CFO, reporting directly to Aron.
