Realscreen has appointed Carrie Gillis, most recently the associate publisher for award-winning, Toronto-based weekly The Grid, as its associate publisher.
Gillis also served as associate publisher for realscreen sister publication Strategy, where she worked with current realscreen VP and publisher Claire Macdonald, and also brings television sales experience to the table, via her turn as a senior sales executive for CBC International Sales and as a sales exec for Télé Images International.
“I’m fortunate to have worked closely with Carrie earlier in my career, and know that she will excel in this role,” said Macdonald in a statement. “She has a strong focus on client solutions and a keen eye for growth opportunities. I look forward to working with her as we continue to evolve the realscreen brand.”
Gillis will be part of the realscreen team attending Realscreen London from September 30-October 1, and MIPCOM in Cannes in October.
