Indie content company AGC Studios has tapped industry veteran Crystal Bourbeau to be its new president of worldwide sales and distribution.
The announcement came from AGC’s founder and CEO, Stuart Ford, to whom Bourbeau (pictured) will report. In the role, Bourbeau will oversee domestic and international sales and distribution for the studio’s film and television slate including sales to domestic studios, international distributors, broadcasters and both global and regional streaming platforms. She will also be heavily involved in AGC’s acquisitions activity, and will work closely with AGC’s head of film Linda McDonough, head of television Lourdes Diaz, head of marketing and publicity Bonnie Voland and COO Miguel Palos.
Bourbeau joins AGC from Solstice Studios, where she was head of acquisitions and international, helping to build the company since its inception. Prior to her time at Solstice, she was executive vice president of international sales and distribution for Lionsgate, where she spent a decade handling the studio’s licensing and distribution initiatives and building its global distribution infrastructure.
“Crystal brings extensive global sales and marketing experience, decades-long relationships and a dynamic work ethic that will perfectly complement the existing AGC senior executive team. We’re very excited to have her onboard,” said Ford in a statement.
Added Bourbeau: “Stuart has built an extremely impressive operation at AGC that has proven to be highly adaptable and home to a commercial slate. I admire the entrepreneurial spirit that is at the core of his outfit and I’m thrilled to be a part of such an ambitious team.”
