London-based Beyond Distribution has appointed Anne-Marie Pardoe as its new senior VP of sales for German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia and Iberia.
Her appointment is immediate, and she will report to the company’s head of sales, Munia Kanna-Konsek. Pardoe has been hired for the role following the departure of Sam Partner last month.
Pardoe joins Beyond Distribution from Disney Media Distribution, where she was most recently sales manager for the U.K. and Ireland. She has extensive experience in international distribution sales, having formerly been sales manager at Channel 4 Distribution and head of sales at Zodiak Rights, formerly RDF Television.
Kanna-Konsek commented: “It’s terrific that Anne-Marie has joined the team. She brings with her such a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help us to further strengthen our client base with key buyers in German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia and Iberia.”
Pardoe added: “I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Beyond. I’ve known many of the team for many years and always admired their catalog and approach to sales. I’m also looking forward to meeting clients new and old at MIPCOM to talk about our exciting slate of new shows.”
