Autentic Distribution Adds to Sales Team


Autentic Distribution has bolstered its sales and acquisitions team with the appointment of Angelika Stebbings, who is now responsible for the international acquisition of high-end documentaries and factual series.

In her new role, Stebbings is the key contact at Autentic Distribution for producers who are looking for a distribution partner for their projects in all stages. She has previously worked in acquisitions and sales at such companies as KirchMedia, EM Entertainment, YEP TV and Mainstream Media.

Further, Studio Hamburg alumni Birte Zywko joined Autentic Distribution’s sales team in July. She is responsible for all sales into France, Benelux, the Nordics, U.K., LatAm, Spain, Portugal, the U.S. and Canada.

Mirjam Strasser, head of sales and acquisitions at Autentic Distribution, said: “The content demand is high and it’s getting more difficult to source factual programs with the quality we need for our clients. I am thrilled about the expansion of our team with those absolute professionals in their fields. With the expertise of Angelika and Birte we can evolve with the ever-changing market and continue to curate top-notch factual productions for our sales catalogue and channels.”
