Playboy Enterprises Appoints Christoph Pachler as EVP and CFO

Playboy Enterprises Inc (PEI) has appointed Christoph Pachler as executive vice president (EVP) and chief financial officer (CFO). In his new position, Pachler will be responsible for the company’s corporate and business development, and financial operations. He joins PEI from Sony Pictures Entertainment, where he currently serves as senior vice president (SVP) – strategy and operations. He will assume his new duties on 24 May 2010.

Pachler joined Sony in 1997 as finance director. Beginning in 2002, he focused on business development and new initiatives as vice president of strategic planning. Named divisional CFO/SVP in 2005, Pachler managed the financial aspects of Sony’s rapidly growing international TV division. In his current position, which he has held since 2008, he has been responsible for the successful completion of numerous content and production deals and the restructuring of operations. He also serves on the board of three international entertainment companies including Lean-M, Huaso and Tuvalu Media.

He began his career with The Kushner-Locke Company in 1994 and held a series of increasingly responsible positions with other companies in the entertainment industry before joining Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Pachler holds an MBA from the University of Business and Economics in Vienna, Austria, and a Masters in International Relations from the University of Amsterdam.

PEI’s CFO position has been vacant since year-end 2009. Robert Campbell has served as interim CFO since that time. He will report to Pachler and will continue to oversee key functions of the company’s financial management.
