Prominent Hollywood film producer Ryan Kavanaugh established himself as a leader in the film industry by developing innovative solutions to finance films. Founding Relativity Media, LLC in 2004 and leading the firm as Chief Executive Officer, Ryan Kavanaugh leveraged an innovative singles/doubles strategic model toward financing deals that maximized profit while minimizing risk. Through major deals with industry giants such as Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Warner Brothers, Kavanaugh led Relativity to early success.

Relativity followed up this success with a major 2011 agreement with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, which involves the distribution and marketing of Relativity films on Blu-ray and DVD.
