Phoenix Pictures has promoted Christopher Trunkey to chief financial officer.

Trunkey, who joined the company in August 2001 as financial controller, reports to president-chief operating officer Arnie Messer and holds responsibility for all financial operations.

Trunkey spent 12 years in the entertainment industry as a financial exec and consultant.

Prior to joining Phoenix, Trunkey was CFO at National Lampoon and at Kings Road Entertainment.

At Kings Road, which was headed by Stephen Friedman, Trunkey recapitalized the company through equity placements and the sale of the Kings Road film library to Icon Prods.

Trunkey is also a director of the Stephen Friedman Multiple Myeloma Fund, a charitable foundation that has provided over $200,000 for cancer research to the U. of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Phoenix has two features awaiting release this year: John McTiernan's military thriller "Basic," starring John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, and an adaptation of the children's novel "Holes," co-starring Sigourney Weaver and Jon Voight.
