Mark Zoradi, the former president of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group, has joined the big screen projection company Imax Corp. as a strategic advisor.

Zoradi spent nearly three decades at Disney, most recently overseeing worldwide marketing and distribution, before he was ousted in November in a series of executive shake-ups led by studio Chairman Rich Ross.

In his new nonexecutive role, Zoradi will advise the Canadian company in all areas of the business, including film acquisition, distribution and marketing.

"The Imax network continues to expand around the globe, and Mark's industry insight and expertise will no doubt help us further establish ourselves as a critical distribution platform for event titles,'' Imax Chief Executive Richard  Gelfond said in a statement.

"Imax is an incredible brand with a distinct and important position in the overall distribution strategy of nearly every major studio,'' Zoradi said.
