eOne has promoted Troy Lum as it introduces a new regionally-focused leadership structure across its Global Film Group.
According to a statement, the realignment is designed to further support partnership activities globally, and reflects the film group’s increasing number of multi-territory relationships from leading suppliers including Amblin Partners and The Mark Gordon Company. It also builds upon eOne’s global production and sales alliance with Sierra Pictures.
“Alex, Troy and Patrick are dynamic leaders with deep industry experience, and have been instrumental in growing our business and broadening our great partnerships around the world," said by Steve Bertram, President, Global Film Group, Entertainment One.
"We are looking forward to continued success from them in their expanded regional roles as we prepare for an exciting film slate in the year ahead.”
As Managing Director, Film, Asia-Pacific, Lum extends his role from Australia and New Zealand to now include the full Asia-Pacific as the company creates new opportunities in the region.
In 2011 eOne acquired Lum’s Sydney-based Hopscotch Films, which he launched with partners in 2002 and went on to become one of Australia and New Zealand’s leading independent distributors.
In addition to this expanded role, Lum will continue to produce films under his Hopscotch Features label which has a strategic relationship with eOne, and is currently working on a Lee Miller biopic starring Kate Winslet and a feature adaptation of Anna Funder's All That I Am, as well as TV projects.
Also as part of the reshuffle, Alex Hamilton, who currently leads eOne’s UK film business, will expand his oversight across Europe, Middle East and Africa as Managing Director, Film, EMEA, while Patrick Roy adds US film and speciality label Momentum Pictures to his Canadian responsibilities, managing all North American film operations as President, Film, North America, Entertainment One and President, Les Films Séville.
