Former Alliance Films and eOne executive Naveen Prasad has joined Elevation Pictures to oversee distribution, sales and operations across all media.

Prasad joins Elevation as exec VP and general manager, taking a role at the firm led by co-presidents Laurie May and Noah Segal, as the indie distributor continues to grow its film release slate and profile after the Berlin and Cannes film festivals.

He was most recently senior VP of TV and online at eOne Films Canada.

Prasad also oversaw TV and digital activities at Alliance Films, which produced Undercover Boss Canada, before that indie distribution outfit was acquired in January 2013 by eOne.
