LeGoy new veep for international licensing

Sony Pictures TV Intl. has upped Keith LeGoy to exec VP of distribution, responsible for the overall management and direction of the company’s licensing operations outside the U.S.

Job also entails oversight of all digital content delivery outside North America, including video-on-demand and subscription VOD over cable, satellite, terrestrial and wireless broadband.

LeGoy will report to division prexy Michael Grindon and relocate from Miami to the conglom’s Culver City headquarters.

In Miami, LeGoy was senior VP and managing director for Latin America. In that role, he managed SPTI’s investments in HBO Latin America and E! Entertainment Latin America; advertising sales; production operations; and spinoff channels AXN, SET and Animax, as well as content licensing to that region.

“As he supervises our licensing business around the world, we continue to rely on Keith’s ability to maintain excellent client relationships and recognize new business opportunities to continue SPTI’s growth,” Grindon said.

LeGoy joined Sony in 1999 as senior VP of European distribution in London after several years at Disney’s international TV unit; before that, he was with a Hearst publications offshoot in London.

In his new role at Sony, he effectively replaces Peter Iacono, who was recently promoted to senior exec VP and will now oversee Sony’s local-language film production operations outside the U.S.
