Passion Distribution is adding former FremantleMedia International exec Sean Wheatley to the team as head of acquisitions.
In the new role, Wheatley will be charged with leading the UK-based distribution company’s content acquisition activity, working both with Passion’s production partners within the Tinopolis Group and independent producers. He will also be responsible for expanding Passion’s network of producer partnerships.
Wheatley will report to Passion CEO Emmanuelle Namiech when he takes up the position later this spring.
Most recently, he served as the senior acquisitions manager at FremantleMedia, where he expanded FMI’s factual slate. Prior to that, Wheatley was acquisitions manager at Sky Vision and has also held various production roles within Parthenon and Atlantic Productions.
