DHX Media has appointed two new distribution sales managers for key territories, and both are promotions from within the company.
Darcee McCartney and Rebecca Lugo have both been promoted to the position of sales manager. Based in Toronto, they will report to Jerry Diaz, DHX’s VP of distribution.
McCartney will oversee client relationships for CEE, Poland, Russia, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East and Africa. She has been with DHX for seven years and previously held the position of senior manager of client operations.
Lugo will handle distribution sales for Latin America, Brazil, Ireland, the U.S. Hispanic market, local U.S. digital and in-flight. She has been with DHX for five years and is being promoted from the role of sales associate.
“Both Darcee and Rebecca are passionate about kids’ and family shows and have a keen understanding of the international content market,” said Diaz. “We’re confident they’ll be strong assets on the sales team, and we’re happy they’ll be joining us at MIPTV this April to share our exciting slate of new shows with clients, as well as our deep library of classics.”
