Paris-based production company Gaumont is growing its global team of distribution and co-production executives with the addition of Ben Bishop (pictured left) and Alli Farrell (pictured center).
Bishop has been tapped as VP of TV distribution for Asia, Australia and New Zealand (APAC). And LA-based Farrell will serve as VP of marketing with responsibility for developing strategic initiatives to support worldwide TV sales.
Before joining Gaumont, Bishop was a sales director for Australia, New Zealand and Asia at Entertainment One. Farrell joins the team from Sony Pictures Television in Hong Kong, where she served as VP of marketing, publicity, distribution and international production.
Additionally, Alexis Barqueiro (pictured right) has been promoted to VP of TV co-productions and acquisitions. Based in Paris, she will work with Jennevie Olivieri, who has herself been upped to manager of TV co-productions and acquisitions.
Earlier this year, Gaumont expanded its animation and family division by tapping Alex Soto to fill a new creative director position, shifting Terry Kalagian into an SVP of creative development role, and hiring Kimberly Dennison as VP of creative development.
