Michael Moses

Co-President, Worldwide Marketing Universal Pictures

Michael Moses is Co-President of Worldwide Marketing for Universal Pictures, working alongside Josh Goldstine, President of Worldwide Marketing. Moses is responsible for all areas of the global marketing department and directly oversees digital marketing, publicity and promotions.

As Co-President, Moses has spearheaded marketing campaigns that helped propel the studio to record breaking results. In 2017, the studio saw its most profitable year, crossing $5 billion at the worldwide box office for the second time in its 106-year history with the successful slate of films including Split, Fifty Shades Darker, Get Out, The Fate of the Furious, Illumination’s Despicable Me 3 and Girls Trip. Universal also had a memorable year in 2015, as it marked the then highest-grossing domestic, international and worldwide box office of any single year in any film studio’s history. 2015 became the first time any studio ever tallied three films to cross $1 billion at the worldwide box office, with Furious 7, Jurassic World and Illumination’s Minions all reaching that milestone.  

Since becoming Co-President in 2010, Moses has worked on the launch of several Universal franchises including Fifty Shades of Grey, Pitch Perfect, Despicable Me, Ride Along, Neighbors, The Purge, and Snow White and the Huntsman. He also worked on a diverse slate of commercial and popular hits such as the Academy Award®-winning Les Miserables, The Bourne Ultimatum, Trainwreck, and Straight Outta Compton, just to name a few.

Previously, Moses served as Executive Vice President of Publicity for eight years beginning in 2002, overseeing domestic publicity campaigns for the Universal slate.   During this period, Universal had five films cross $100 million at the domestic box office in summer 2003, a feat unprecedented in studio history at the time. Prior to this role, Moses was vice President of Publicity when he joined Universal in 2000.

Before joining Universal, he worked as Director of Publicity at Disney, a staff writer at Warner Bros. and began his career in as a Communications Coordinator for the Disney Development Company.

Moses earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Pepperdine University, where he graduated summa cum laude and served as valedictorian of his graduating class.  He was born and raised in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and currently resides in Los Angeles.
