Former Marine with an extensive background in entertainment and finance, named President
and Board Member of Allied Artists International, parent of all Allied Artists Entertainment Ventures
Glendale, CA – Today, Allied Artists International, Inc.’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, Kim Richards, formally announced the appointment of John Antrim Giuliano as President and Member of the corporation’s Board of Directors. John will serve as CFO while the iconic film and music company restructures its corporate finances. Richards said “John comes to us at a particularly opportune time, as we continue to revitalize the Allied Artists and Monogram Pictures brands and build upon our Imperial Records and Brimstone Records labels” adding that “John’s expertise in venture capital and film finance, will position both our film and music units alongside the traditional majors.” Remarking on the iconic nature of Allied Artists, John recalls that “One of my first memories is watching TV and seeing the Allied Artists logo. Our trademark is one of those that everybody seems to remember. I’m looking forward to preserving the rich history and bringing Allied Artists back to the forefront,” noting that “we have some amazing projects in the pipeline.”
John began his career in entertainment at the tender age of thirteen – at his local college radio station WVKC in Galesburg, Illinois – where he learned from the ground floor up, performing duties ranging from menial intern tasks to programming, even finding himself behind the microphone as on-air talent. Although John was a fixture among the WVKC family, he elected to serve his country, joining the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. While in the Corps, John attended Hawaii Pacific University becoming a trained legal assistant to the Comptroller of the Marine Corps, FMF Pac.
As much as John loved the Corps, his passion for entertainment simply couldn’t be bridled. Upon completion of his commitment to the Corps, at age twenty-two, John was snapped up by Health & Business Trend, a content aggregator for CNBC, as a talent scout, segment producer and ultimately executive producer. Armed with an education in law and business, John began pursuing entertainment finance, while symbiotically creating related content for CNBC.
By the time John was twenty-six, he co-founded his first record label in partnership with Atlantic Records, delivering multiple top 10 hits and racking up gold and platinum sales awards along the way. While authoritatively mastering his passion for entertainment, John simultaneously began a company that would ultimately become Vibrant Investment Group, dedicated to diversification of asset and wealth management. This unique entity partnered with boutique banking firms and elite managers of sports and entertainment ventures, to spearhead numerous acquisitions of precious metals, together with oil and gas assets, amassing a portfolio in the multi billions of dollars.
Given his vast experience in broadcasting, films and music, John was named President of Allied Artists International, Inc. in 2018 and now sits on its Board of Directors. Working in conjunction with Kim Richards, Allied’s longtime Chairman and CEO, John has assumed day to day management of Allied’s portfolio of companies. With John’s expert guidance, Allied’s management has established its own investment trust to build on its legendary foundation of assets, while adding new concepts and opportunities through investment banking, designed to hone a robust real estate portfolio.
The history of Allied Artists is long, varied and legendary. Throughout the years, the Allied Artists brand has been associated with such classic motion pictures as “Papillon,” starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, “Cabaret,” with Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, “Tickle Me” starring Elvis Presley, and “The Man Who Would be King,” starring Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Christopher Plummer, to name but a few.
