eOne taps Hamilton, Vazquez for Euro roles

Execs to head operations in Blighty, Spain

LONDON

Alex Hamilton and Jorge Vazquez will head eOne’s operations in Blighty and Spain, global film biz topper Patrice Theroux announced Tuesday.

The news comes less than a week after eOne completed its C$225 million ($228 million) acquisition of Alliance Films from Goldman Sachs Capital Partners and Investissement Quebec on Jan. 9, which included affils Momentum Pictures (U.K.) and Aurum Prods. (Spain) alongside its Canadian assets.

Hamilton, who has headed eOne’s own British distrib since 2008 when it launched with the first “Twilight” film, will take over the combined U.K. film team. Hamilton was Momentum’s director of sales before becoming president of Icon Film Distribution U.K. in 2005.

Adam Hurst, eOne’s deputy chief financial officer, who joined at its inception in 2008, will also move over to the U.K. biz as finance director. But Charles Ogilvie, who has overseen the finance and operations of eOne’s U.K. business since its launch, will leave. Ogilvie founded Contender Entertainment in 1995 and joined eOne after the company acquired Contender in 2007.

Vazquez joined Aurum 14 years ago, rising to managing director in 2008, the role he now takes on for eOne in Spain. His achievements at Aurum include securing an output deal with Summit/Lionsgate in Spain, bringing in the “Twilight” and “Hunger Games” franchises.

Further announcements on leadership, branding and organizational structure are expected in the coming weeks.
