LONDON — Sony Pictures Television has made several changes to the regional leadership of its international distribution team ahead of next week’s Mipcom TV market in Cannes. The move follows yesterday’s promotion of Steve Mosko to SPT chairman.
The international team, which is led by Keith LeGoy, looks after the licensing of Sony’s movies and TV series to free television, basic cable, subscription pay TV and new media platforms in global markets.
Mike Wald, executive VP, international distribution, returns from London, where he oversaw SPT’s distribution efforts in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, to Los Angeles, where he will head up SPT’s distribution activities across Asia-Pacific.
Angel Orengo will now lead the team in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and takes the title executive VP, international distribution, EMEA. He moves from Hong Kong, where he oversaw the Asia-Pacific territories, to the company’s London office.
Alexander Marin, executive VP, international distribution in Latin America and the Caribbean, will now also oversee Canada.
Additionally, Robert Lanier was appointed senior VP of international distribution, Asia-Pacific, covering Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Lanier will work out of the company’s Sydney office and report to Wald, as will Ken Lo, senior VP of international distribution, Asia-Pacific, overseeing SPT’s distribution in China, India, Korea and Southeast Asia, and based in Hong Kong.
SPT’s slate at Mipcom is headed by “The Art of More,” starring Dennis Quaid, Kate Bosworth and Christian Cooke. The show, which delves into the cutthroat world of premium auction houses, screens in the Cannes Palais on Oct. 4.
