Entertainment One has hired StudioCanal’s Harold van Lier as president of its international film division, starting in January.

The company said Van Lier will amplify eOne’s international film division through new partnerships with producers, filmmakers and distributors. It noted that it has bolstered its acquisitions strategy with the new production financing arrangements with City National Bank and OneWest Bank.

The company also said Van Lier will collaborate with other eOne execs to maximize direct distribution potential, adding that its augmented commitment positions it to secure premium commercial titles with widespread appeal.

Van Lier has been exec VP of international distribution at Studiocanal, where he handled sales on “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Paddington,” “Shaun the Sheep,” “Non-Stop” and “The Gunman.”
