SYDNEY — Australia’s Beyond Intl. has created an office in Ireland, Beyond Entertainment, to oversee its international TV sales and acquisitions, as well as film sales.
Munia Kanna, head of TV sales and acquisitions, is moving from Sydney to the Dublin office. Hilary Davis, head of sales for Beyond Films, will continue to be based in London. Fiona Crago, general manager of Beyond Distribution, remains in Sydney.
Ireland was chosen due to its proximity to Europe and telecommunications infrastructure, the company said.
Michael Murphy, formerly director of programs at TV3 Ireland, director of content at Yes TV and director of digital television at Eircom Group, has been named a director of Beyond Entertainment.
