(The Hollywood Reporter) -- Longtime Paramount Home Entertainment and pay television executive Steve Madoff is replacing Steven Glick, PHE executive VP of business affairs, licensees and business development, who is leaving the studio.

Madoff, who joined Paramount as an attorney in 1987 during the boom days of home video in the United States, is expected to head up an aggressive new international DVD and pay-television strategy for PHE.

While Madoff will maintain his title of executive VP of business and legal affairs worldwide for home entertainment and pay television, he also will take direct responsibility for PHE's international business and legal affairs, PHE president Thomas Lesinski said.

Madoff will report to Lesinski and Rob Friedman, COO of Paramount Pictures/vice chairman of the Motion Picture Group.

Glick took a post at Thomson SA, which owns Technicolor, international IT media company Grass Valley and RCA, among other holdings.
