Paramount Pictures Intl. prexy Andrew Cripps made the appointments.

Okazaki had been at BVI since 1993, rising to VP of sales. He begins his new job Sept. 1.

Auger has been upped from topper of the marketing division at Paramount Home Entertainment Spain, a position he’s held since 1999. He takes on his new role Dec. 1.

In June, PPI announced that it will launch a standalone theatrical distribution operation in Japan in January. When Par and Universal decided to untangle their United Intl. Pictures distrib last year, Japan remained one of the key territories still handled by UIP.

Universal Pictures Spain will distribute Par pics until July, when Paramount Pictures Spain will take over.
