Dubinet will open, top IAC sales offices in L.A.

Exec to run theatrical team, will continue with Alchemy

LONDON — Veteran Hollywood film sales exec Ann Dubinet has teamed up with London-based sales company IAC Holdings to open a Los Angeles office.

Dubinet will be president of IAC America and lead the theatrical sales team. Separately, she will also continue to run her own company, Alchemy Entertainment, a joint venture with producer Martin Bregman.

Suiting up

The appointment is one of several new hires by IAC, which is ramping up its activities. Mike Ryan, the former co-chairman of J&M Entertainment, who has been acting as a consultant to IAC, will now join the board with specific responsibility for film development and production.

Keith Cousins, IAC’s legal adviser and a non-exec director, will become managing director. Natalie Brenner, formerly of J&M, joins as VP of sales, and Rebecca Hawkes has been tapped head of technical services.

Dubinet’s long career spans the Samuel Goldwyn Co., Island World and Live Entertainment. She has been developing her Alchemy shingle for the past 18 months and will continue to operate independently, though there’s likely to be some cooperation between the two on sales and financing.
