“I’ve had the privilege of working with Sandie for many years and I’m delighted to announce her promotion,” said Lum, managing director of Hopscotch/eOne. “Sandie has an unparalleled understanding of our market and outstanding relationships with the talented creative community in Australia. Her leadership and expertise have been absolutely intrustmental to the success (of) our business year after year.”
