Zodiak streamlines in Western Hemisphere

Zodiak Americas incorporates production activities in Americas

Zodiak Media has consolidated its existing production businesses in North, Central and South America with the launch of Zodiak Americas.

Launch is part of Zodiak’s efforts to ramp up its activities in the Western Hemisphere. Zodiak Americas will be headed by Jonny Slow, former Zodiak Media chief operating officer who has a background in corporate development and acquisitions. Slow will move from London and be based in Los Angeles. He is expected to oversee investments in the Americas region as well as serve as a liaison between the London office and the U.S.

Structure of Zodiak Americas will mirror divisional structures in other Zodiak Media regions. Parent company currently has 45 shingles in 20 territories. Production activities are divided by region, including Zodiak France, Zodiak Southern Europe and Zodiak Middle East, Asia and Australia.

“On the whole, our production companies have relative creative autonomy,” Slow told Variety. “But without proper management structure, it can become chaotic. This launch allows us to organize ourselves to make sure the different arms of our company work together.”

“We’re serious about the American market,” Slow added.

Natalka Znak was recently named topper of Zodiak USA. Slow will work closely with Znak along with Harris Whitbeck and Carla Affonso, toppers of Zodiak Latino and Brasil, respectively. Tony Yates has been tapped as Zodiak Americas chief operating officer and Andy Lennon as chief financial officer.
