Sony Pictures Television is making a number of key changes to their international distribution teams across Asia-Pacific, EMEA and Canada.
EVP of International Distribution Mike Wald is relocating from London to Los Angeles, where he will oversee distribution and strategic management of both feature films and TV series, as well as head up SPT’s distribution across Asia-Pacific. Wald has been with Sony for more than two decades and most recently oversaw distribution of SPT titles in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Asia Pacific boss Angel Orengo is also on the move and will now serve as Executive Vice-President of International Distribution for EMEA. He will be based out of Sony’s London office. Most recently, as EVP, International Distribution, Asia Pacific, Angel was based out of the company’s Hong Kong office where he oversaw SPT’s distribution efforts in all of Asia, plus Australia, New Zealand and India.
Sony Pictures Television’s Executive Vice-President of International Distribution for Latin America and The Caribbean Alexander Marin is also getting an expanded brief, adding Canada to the territories already under his purview. Robert Lanier, who recently held a role in Sony’s international channels business, has been named SVP of International Distribution, Asia Pacific, overseeing Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Finally, Ken Lo has been appointed, SVP, International Distribution, Asia Pacific and will be responsible for distribution in China, India, Korea and Southeast Asia. He will be based out of Honk Kong and will report to Mike Wald. Robert Lanier also reports to Wald, while Mike Wald, Angel Orengo and Alexander Marin report to Keith LeGoy, Sony Pictures Television’s President of International Distribution.
“All of these executives are amazing and talented leaders who have established excellent relationships across multiple territories. They are astute at responding to the specific needs of clients, while understanding the quickly evolving content marketplace around the world,” said LeGoy. “These appointments not only allow them to bring their learning and expertise to different markets, but also underscore our commitment to developing and providing opportunities for our executives who excel.”
