Indie television distributor Beyond Distribution has appointed former Disney sales manager Anne-Marie Pardoe as its new SVP of sales, effective immediately.
In the role, Pardoe (pictured) will be responsible for all sales across German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia and Iberia. She reports directly to Munia Kanna-Konsek, head of sales.
She replaces Sam Partner, who departed the London-based sales arm of Sydney-headquartered Beyond International last month to join LA’s Cloudco Entertainment as VP of international content distribution.
Pardoe joins Beyond from Disney Media Distribution, where she most recently served as sales manager for the UK and Ireland. Prior to this, she was sales manager at Channel 4 Distribution and head of sales at Zodiak Rights (formerly RDF Television).
“Anne-Marie brings with her such a wealth of knowledge and experience which will help us to further strengthen our client-base with key buyers in German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia and Iberia,” said Kanna-Konsek in a statement.
Pardoe will be representing Beyond’s catalog at next month’s MIPCOM market in Cannes, France.
