Veteran exec Michael Dwyer is joining IM Global as senior VP of international sales and distribution to handle the 250 titles in the company’s library.
IM Global founder and CEO Stuart Ford made the announcement Monday at the Cannes Film Festival. Titles include the Beacon, Spyglass and Intermedia libraries, which include “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machine,” “Air Force One,” “Wanted,” “Thirteen Days,” “Malcolm X,” “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “27 Dresses,” “The Wedding Planner” and “Bring it On.”
Dwyer has been in a similar post at Screen Media, where he was VP of international sales and acquisitions, and responsible for sales of more than 500 titles. He also launched Screen Media’s first-run division, overseeing release of more than 20 films annually.
He will work with Chris Bosco, chief operating officer of IM Global, in evaluating further library and corporate acquisition opportunities and managing the convergence between film, TV and library sales activities. He will report to Ford and Bosco, who negotiated the deal.
