Superights Adds STUDIOCANAL Alum to Sales Team


Superights has tapped STUDIOCANAL alum Séverine Leroux as sales manager for Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and in-flight zones.

Leroux, a graduate of IÉSEG School of Management, joins from STUDIOCANAL UK, where she worked on digital sales. For her new role at Superights, she will be based in Paris.

Leroux will report to Nathalie Pinguet, deputy managing director of sales and acquisitions.

With Leroux’s hiring, the Superights sales team is now organized as such: Pinguet handles pan deals, the U.K., Germany, Western Europe, the Nordics, Russia, the U.S., Canada and the Middle East; Hugo Brochard oversees Asia, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Spain and Portugal; Leroux supervises Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and in-flight; Pedro Citaristi manages sales in Italy; and Élodie Friess ensures sales coordination and administration.

“I am very excited about joining SUPERIGHTS’ team under Nathalie’s supervision,” Leroux said. “Contributing to its catalog development and international expansion is a new adventure in animation which I am happy to be part of.”

Pinguet added, “I’m delighted to welcome Séverine in our team. Her previous experience at STUDIOCANAL in the U.K. will strengthen the skills of our team and support our goal of managing a growing catalog. I wish her every success in her new role.”
