In a pre-Cannes move, IM Global has promoted Jonathan Deckter to president, elevating the exec from his slate as president of international sales and distribution.

Founder and CEO Stuart Ford announced the promotion at the sales-financing-production company. Deckter has also signed a multi-year employment deal as have execs Bonnie Voland and Tatyana Joffe.

Deckter, who came on board from Lakeshore International in 2010, is acting as the senior sales executive for its Opus, Octane, Acclaim and Anthem labels.
