Stockholm-based distribution company Eccho Rights has appointed Barbora Susterova (pictured) to the newly created post of head of Latin America.

Susterova joins the Ultimate Brain and Hide and Seek distributor this month from Spanish production giant Imagina, where she spent the last eight years managing strategic territories, including markets in Latin America. She will continue to be based out of Madrid.

Before joining Imagina, she served in acquisition and sales exec roles at Prague-based Dramedy Productions and Spain’s Globomedia respectively.

The appointment comes at a time when the Spark Eccho Group-owned distributor has seen a six-month spike in sales of its catalog within the region.

Fredrik af Malmborg, managing director of Eccho Rights, said in a statement that Susterova’s “extensive knowledge of the Latin American market will help Eccho Rights to build on this interest.”
