When Jeffrey was President at Paramount Studios, the legendary studio produced such iconic films as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saturday Night Fever, Grease and Best Picture Academy Award® winners Ordinary People and Terms of Endearment. Soon after, as the Chairman of Disney he ushered in a new era for the studio with some of the most beloved animated features of all time, including Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King.

In 1994, along with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen, Jeffrey co-founded DreamWorks SKG, which produced a number of celebrated films including three Best Picture Academy Award® winners – American Beauty, Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind. In 2004, DreamWorks Animation became a publicly-traded company with Jeffrey at the helm. Currently celebrating its 20th Anniversary, under Jeffrey’s leadership DreamWorks Animation has become a global family entertainment brand recognized around the world for its storytelling and innovation. The studio has released 29 films and is responsible for entertainment franchises including Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and How to Train Your Dragon.

Underlying Jeffrey's work at DreamWorks Animation is a deep commitment to across-the-board creativity and innovation, as he aggressively pursues a vision of immersive entertainment that goes beyond the big screen. The studio is well-known for pioneering and working with companies to develop solutions ranging from teleconferencing technology to revolutionary animation software, all in service of the iconic stories they tell.

The entertainment industry continues to grow from a revenue and content perspective. Most importantly, it continues to reinvent and re-imagine the way stories are told and consumed. To hear more from Jeffrey about driving innovation and the future of the industry, get your tickets to BoxWorks now.
