Acamar hires DreamWorks & Fox sales execs

Acamar Films has expanded its team with Fox exec Sandra Vauthier-Cellier (pictured) and DreamWorks recruits Eroulla Constantine and Ben Taylor.

Sandra Vauthier-CellierVauthier-Cellier will act as chief commercial officer, Constantine will take the role of head of sales and Taylor will become sales co-ordinator.

The appointments arrive due to the continued success of preschool show Bing and the global growth of the property across broadcast, digital and consumer products, according to UK-based Acamar.

Bing, which has been partly distributed by Aardman Rights since 2014, will now return in-house to Acamar to be handled by the newly formed team.

The television rights to Bing will transition back to Acamar from Aardman later this year.

Mikael Shields, CEO at Acamar, said: “We are incredibly proud of the continued success of Bing to date – we want to thank our friends at Aardman who have done an incredible job securing key deals around the globe.

“Our aim was always to bring Bing back in-house once he had found his feet internationally and I am excited that senior executives of the calibre of Sandra and Eroulla are joining us as we drive forward with the next phase of expansion.

“We welcome Ben to our thriving and ever-growing team which works tirelessly on making Bing a success across TV and licensing and merchandising.”
