Global TV vet Kim Hatamiya has joined Sony Pictures Television Intl. as the company’s senior vice president of sales and marketing.

Hatamiya replaces Annie Morita, who abruptly left the company in late February. Hatamiya will report to Sony Pictures TV Intl. prexy Michael Grindon, who made the announcement Monday.

Sony Pictures TV Intl.’s worldwide reach includes program distribution and licensing, international networks (such as AXN) and local production. As the new sales and marketing chief, Hatamiya will handle the division’s advertising, publicity, promotions, creative services and research.

Hatamiya helped launch Fox Kids U.K. and Fox Kids Latin America as senior vice president of Fox Kids Worldwide. She also headed up the Latin American cable channel Canal Fox, which became the region’s most-viewed cable/satellite outlet under her watch.

“She brings a wealth of experience in international television marketing, channel management, programming, production and digital media,” Grindon said.
