Insurgent Media has hired industry veteran Christian De Gallegos as head of international sales as part of its launch of the new division.

Insurgent made the announcement Thursday at the American Film Market. De Gallegos will report to CEO Ezna Sands and will oversee international sales for Insurgent Media’s slate.

“I’m thrilled to start our international sales division with such an esteemed veteran in the sales world,” said Sands. “We share the same passion and drive. With our dynamic slate at Insurgent, it is going to be an exciting partnership for us.”

De Gallegos said, “I couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter in my career. Insurgent is the home I’ve been looking for; it is a dynamic team with cutting-edge taste and the relationships to produce the movies I want to make a reality.”

De Gallegos ran sales for Green-Light Intl. and handled titles including “Imperium,” starring Daniel Radcliffe; “Urge,” starring Pierce Brosnan; and “Custody,” starring Viola Davis.

Prior to Green-Light, De Gallegos served as president of Intl. Film Trust, which repped titles including “Cymbeline,” starring Ethan Hawke, Milla Jovovich, and Dakota Johnson; Stephen King’s “Cell,” starring Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack; and Werner Herzog’s “Salt & Fire.” He previously served as VP of Sales at Voltage Pictures and handled international distribution for such titles as “The Hurt Locker,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” and “The Company You Keep.” De Gallegos started his career at Paradigm.
