Aldamisa International taps Hausfater as COO

Sales and finance company eyes de Barros as int'l sales prexy

International sales and finance company Aldamisa International has tapped industry vet Jere Hausfater as chief operating officer, effective immediately.

Company is also in talks with former Voltage exec Nadine de Barros to come on board as president of international sales.

Hausfater, whose history includes posts with Intermedia Films and Disney, will partner with Alexander Rodnyansky’s AR Films to oversee worldwide sales for Aldamisa at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. That includes shopping Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming pics “Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and “Machete Kills” (Aldamisa reps AR Films U.S.’ projects worldwide).

Aldamisa will also rep an untitled project from “Die Hard 2” helmer Renny Harlin currently in post-production.

“Jere is one of the most talented and seasoned executives in the industry,” said Aldamisa co-chair and co-CEO Sergei Bespalov. “He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, relationships and passion to our company and projects.”

Hausfater, who served as a consultant to Aldamisa on several films prior to his appointment, most recently founded and worked as CEO of Essential Entertainment. Before that, he served as exec VP of Miramax International, where he worked on distribution for the original “Sin City.” He also spent more than 12 years as an exec with Buena Vista.

Aldamisa could not confirm talk of de Barros’ appointment, but sources say she notified friends of the move in an email last week.

De Barros joined Nicolas Chartier and Dean Devlin’s Voltage in 2005 after serving as VP of international sales and acquisitions at Crystal Sky’s genre division Renegade Worldwide.

Aldamisa co-chairs and co-CEOs Sergei and Marina Bespalov founded Aldamisa in 2011. Company is a subsidiary of Aldamisa Entertainment and is based in Encino, California.
