Entertainment One (eOne) has appointed former BBC Studios executive David Hanono to the position of VP of sales for Latin America.

Hanono will be based in Miami and report to Dan Loewy, eOne’s recently promoted executive VP of international distribution for the Americas. Hanono will be responsible for the sales of eOne’s film and television slate in Latin America across all linear and nonlinear OTT platforms.

Hanono joins eOne from BBC Studios, where he oversaw all content sales for Latin America and U.S. Hispanic, including Digital, TV and format sales. He delivered double-digit growth in program sales and expanded the portfolio of BBC customers in the region, particularly in OTT. Having worked in global media organizations for more than 20 years, Hanono has extensive experience in digital TV and wider media and technology industry. Previously, he held key positions at Univision, Lucent Technologies and NEC, among others.

“Having boots on the ground in Miami represents a natural extension to the Latin American market,” commented Loewy. “David is a smart and strategic sales executive and we are delighted to welcome him to the team. His relationships and experience in the ever-growing vibrant Latin American marketplace align with our efforts in the region as we continue to build our business on premium shows.”
