Lisa Kramer, formerly EVP of international television licensing at ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group, has been tapped as head of international licensing, Realscreen understands.
UK trade publication Broadcast first reported the news of Kramer’s appointment, which follows the departure of the group’s international sales head Barry Chamberlain in December, Realscreen confirmed.
The executive will relocate from London to Los Angeles for the role.
Since 2006, Kramer has held a number of senior titles at Paramount Pictures, part of ViacomCBS, including EVP of international TV licensing, SVP of international TV licensing and SVP of TV distribution for Europe.
In May, the company confirmed that CBS Global Distribution Group president and CEO Armando Nuñez would be moving into an advisory role at the ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group with Dan Cohen, president of global content licensing at ViacomCBS, leading the global distribution arm as president.
Among other recent executive shuffles at the media conglomerate, ViacomCBS confirmed in December the promotion of long-time executive Raffaele Annecchino to president and CEO at its international networks division, succeeding David Lynn, who stepped down after 24 years with the company.
