Sony Pictures Television exec Tom Bairstow is joining Content Media Corporation as vice president of sales and distribution.

Based in London, he will oversee film and TV sales across French-speaking Europe and Africa, Japan, Asia, Israel and the Middle East. He reports to Content’s exec VP of sales and distribution, Jonathan Ford.

For the past two years, he worked at SPT’s executive director of distribution Nordics and Benelux and prior to that he was a sales manager and director at Target Entertainment Group where he was responsible for Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Israel and Middle East.

Meanwhile, the global media company has also promoted two other execs after reorganizing its previously separate film and TV distribution teams under into one department.

Vicky Ryan has been promoted to exec VP of commercial affairs and Jennifer Brinkworth is now exec VP of marketing and communications. Both roles cover film, TV and digital sales.

Both will continue reporting to president of distribution Greg Phillips.
