Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE:DLB) today announced it has engaged Sid Ganis to support its cinema business and expand relationships with the industry's creative leaders. Ganis, who most recently served as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), will advise senior management on a variety of initiatives to better serve the creative, production, and exhibition communities.

"Sid is a globally respected executive with a star-studded past and decades of experience," said Ramzi Haidamus, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Dolby. "Sid brings deep, long-standing relationships, a record of achievement, and proven creative instincts to Dolby. We look forward to Sid's contributions and guidance as we work with creative partners to innovate and deliver new experiences to the market."

“Dolby is a special company which has had a profound impact on cinema,” said Ganis. “I’m thrilled to be part of an effort to revolutionize the movie experience again. I believe the right innovations make cinema magical and look forward to applying my background and enthusiasm to Dolby’s efforts.”

In addition to serving as Academy president, Ganis has served four terms as first vice president and has been a member of the AMPAS Board of Governors representing the public relations branch of the Academy.
