Le Goy Deftly Manages Media at Sony
Keith Le Goy has transformed into a media mogul, going from magazine advertising rep to now president, worldwide distribution, for Sony Pictures Television (SPE).
“I’ve worked in sales from the beginning of my career and in worldwide sales for most of it, first selling advertising for magazines, then working for Disney in London selling programming before joining Sony 19 years ago,” details Le Goy, who attended the European School in Brussels, then went on to Cambridge University in England.
In his current role at Culver City, CA-based SPE, he manages all distribution for the studio, directing the company's domestic and international licensing operations.
He oversees the distribution of Sony Pictures’ film, television and other content to all media platforms - from terrestrial broadcast, satellite and cable, to digital and electronic delivery, including video-on-demand, subscription-video-on-demand, electronic sell-through and mobile. In February this year Le Goy added oversight of home entertainment to his previous responsibilities.
Prior to his current role, Le Goy was president of international distribution from 2008 and was Sony Pictures Television’s (SPT) executive vice president of distribution, since 2006. He’s based in Culver City now, but he was also previously based at SPT’s Latin America headquarters in Miami, FL, where he served as senior vice president and managing director, Latin America, for three years. He joined SPT in 1999 as senior vice president, European distribution, based at SPT's European headquarters in London, U.K.
His vast global media experience has taught him to listen. “No one person is smarter than a team of people who combine their knowledge and insights. And no one can accomplish anything unless that accomplishment is a team one,” he believes.
Le Goy further feels the most important attribute of any organization is its culture. “It’s extremely important that the people in the organization feel aligned to the culture and goals that we set for ourselves and are hyper-motivated to hit and exceed them.”
This year he’s laser-focused on leadership. “It’s my mission to lead our team through periods of enormous change and uncertainty while keeping morale and engagement sky-high and delivering on our goals. To ensure that every member of our team feels safe, respected and valued,” he outlines.
Le Goy’s best advice for young African-American professionals looking to advance their careers is to “find your superpower. Everyone has the thing that they do supremely well, better than anyone else. Once you know what that is, nothing can stop you.”
