Cineflix Media is looking for a creative director to help pitch shows to Canadian and U.S. broadcasters, as Los Angeles-based Jodi Flynn prepares to leave the indie producer.

Flynn, currently the exec VP of programming, will leave Cineflix later this month to start her own production company.

Her departure comes as Cineflix Media continues to restructure and partially shift its focus from the Canadian market to the U.S. and UK markets, as Canadian broadcasters commission fewer factual series and opt instead to adapt more global formats for their home market.

Also this month, Joanne Virgo is to leave Cineflix’s Toronto office as executive producer to join rival Proper Television and fill the same post.

To help fill the void left by the latest departures at Cineflix, Charles Tremayne, currently the exec VP, is promoted to president of production, based in New York City. Treymayne continues to report to Cineflix Media co-founder and co-CEO Glen Salzman.

Meanwhile, Kim Bondi is promoted to exec VP of production, reporting to Tremayne. At the same time, Sherri Rufh becomes senior VP of production and administration, and Lynn Van Rooyen becomes senior VP of post production.

“Charles and Kim have delivered some of Cineflix’s biggest brands over the last few years and helped expand our slate into new areas,” said Salzman of the promotions in a statement.¬†“In their new roles, alongside Sherri and Lynn, they will be ensuring our existing and new programming maintains the high quality our broadcaster partners know us for.

“We wish Jodi every success with her new venture; this is a very exciting move for her,” he added.
