Boat Rocker Studios Elevates Gia DeLaney


Boat Rocker Studios has promoted Gia DeLaney to senior VP of global sales for kids and family.

Based in the New York office, DeLaney will be responsible for the worldwide distribution of the studio’s kids’ and family slate that includes Kingdom Force, Dino Ranch, Remy & Boo, Love Monster, The Next Step and The Strange Chores, in addition to the Boat Rocker Kids & Family library.

She will continue to report to Jon Rutherford, managing director and president rights at Boat Rocker Studios.

Over the past four years, DeLaney has led the children’s programming sales division for Boat Rocker Studios.

Rutherford said: “This is a richly deserved promotion. Gia’s success in delivering significant sales with leading broadcasters has helped to broaden Boat Rocker’s global footprint and increase our international reputation as a leading producer and distributor of high-quality kids’ and family content across all ages and genres. She is an integral senior leader within the Boat Rocker Studios Kids & Family team.”
