Toronto, Canada-based marblemedia’s Distribution360 has hired long-time programming and distribution exec Caroline Tyre as director of business development.
The move comes as marblemedia continues the expansion of its distribution division and streamlines its operations to incorporate D360, which it fully acquired in May, into all aspects of its business.
Tyre has worked in production, development, programming and distribution for more than 16 years, at companies including eOne, CBC and Decode Entertainment (now DHX Media). She previously served as director of programming at Teletoon, where she managed the acquisitions and scheduling strategy for Teletoon Daytime, Teletoon at Night and Teletoon Retro, and the brand’s multi-platform strategy. She will report to D360 managing partner Mark Bishop.
The company has also added Smiljka Baljozovic to the D360 team as a sales exec. Baljozovic, who has held positions at CBC and Fireworks International, and previously served as international sales exec for the world educational market at TVO, will report to Kirsten Hurd, who has been upped to director of international sales and acquisitions.
And as marblemedia continues to grow its opps for content distribution on non-traditional platforms, the company has also hired on Martin Sieg in the newly created role of interactive brand manager. Sieg will oversee the exploitation of D360 properties in non-traditional distribution channels.
