Jetpack Taps WildBrain Alum to Lead Global Sales


Jetpack Distribution has appointed WildBrain alum Rebecca Lugo as its new head of global sales.

Lugo will drive the sale of all content in Jetpack’s catalog, working specifically across the U.S., Canada, Latin America, France, Spain and Portugal. She joins from a nine-year stint at WildBrain, most recently working in the international distribution team.

At WildBrain, Lugo oversaw sales strategy and managed global and territory-specific relationships based in the U.S., Latin America, Benelux, Italy and Spain, helping to find homes for properties such as Strawberry Shortcake, Teletubbies and Bob the Builder.

“This is an integral role at Jetpack,” said Dominic Gardiner, CEO. “Rebecca has brilliant experience and established relationships with broadcasters and platforms across the globe.”

He continued, “We’re a business focused on offering high-quality shows, but also delivering friendly and personal service, building networks and relationships around the world. Rebecca fits Jetpack’s culture perfectly and shares our ambitions. She’s a great addition to our team.”

“I have a huge passion for this sector and look forward to finding more homes for Jetpack’s high-quality shows across the globe, bringing my insights and knowledge to the role and becoming part of the company’s highly effective and well-established team,” Lugo added.
