Cloudco Entertainment has brought Sam Partner on board as Vice President of International Content Distribution.
Sam starts in the London office of the kids’ content producer and distributor on 20 June, joining from Beyond Distribution, where he was SVP sales for German-speaking European territories, Benelux and the Nordics.
Previous roles have seen Sam work at The Pokémon Company International, Warner Bros. and Sony Picture’s joint venture Filmbank Distributors, and Fremantle Media.
In his new role, Sam will report to Karen Vermeulen, MD of Cloudco’s UK office and Head of Global Content Strategy and Co-production.
“I am absolutely thrilled to see Sam join the Cloudco family,” she says. “He brings such a wealth of knowledge and experience and is so highly respected in the business.”
The appointment follows a raft of hires since Cloudco’s formation last year after it rebranded from American Greetings Entertainment. Both the firm’s UK and LA offices have welcomed new staff to bolster content sales and licensing.
Late last year Cloudco launched two new series, the live-action Holly Hobbie on Hulu and the CGI pre-school series Tinpo on Cbeebies in the UK. Its latest show, the all-new 2D animated Care Bears: Unlock The Magic, debuted on Boomerang in the US and Tiny Pop in the UK earlier this year.
