Preparing for the next phase of its international strategy, TCB Media Rights has appointed Federica Rossi to the position of sales executive and promoted Simona Argenti to head of sales.
Rossi joins the company from CNBC International, where she has served as EMEA account executive for the past three years. A fluent Japanese speaker, she will focus on Asia in her new sales role. Rossi began her career in international television distribution as a sales-support executive for BBC Studios.
Rossi will report to Argenti, who has been promoted to the newly created position of head of sales. Argenti, a former BBC Worldwide sales manager, joined TCB in 2017 and now manages the U.S., Canada, France and Italy.
Paul Heaney, CEO of TCB Media Rights, said, “Our sales team has developed in the last seven years from a two-man operation to a self-contained autonomous unit that has achieved incredible results. Federica, with her language skills and specialist knowledge, is the perfect addition to this team as we focus on expanding our activities across the whole of Asia. The region has historically been a strong market for us due to the nature of the shows we represent—and now, with Federica’s help and under Simona’s guidance, we’re looking forward to building on the relationships we have already and finding new ones.”
