Imira Entertainment’s head of sales and acquisitions Christophe Goldberger is leaving the Spanish toon producer and distributor after eight years, TBI has learned.
The news comes on the same day Imira appointed Elena Mera Dios as sales manager, though a rep said she was not a like-for-like replacement for the departing Goldberger, who has also worked for the likes of Moonscoop and Klik Animation.
Golderberger has run Imira’s sales unit for eight years, during which time he has overseen a catalogue including rights to Larva, Dance Academy, Lola & Virginia, and Sandra the Fairytale Detective.
“After eight years with Imira Entertainment I have decided to explore other opportunities within the industry. Working with the team over this time has been a hugely rewarding experience, and I leave with every faith that Imira will continue to go from strength to strength,” he said.
Imira CEO Sergi Reitg said: “Christophe has been valued colleague and leaves a fantastic legacy at Imira Entertainment, and we wish him every success in the future.”
Goldberger also acted as a producer for Imira, which has worked on productions including Bat Pat, which is coproduced with Italy’s Atlantyca Entertainment and Malasyia’s Inspidea; and in-house series Tube & Victor.
