Superights — the kids & family international sales division of Superprod Group — announced the recruitment of Marie-Laure Roche as Sales Director. Based in London, Marie-Laure will be in charge of the Asian Pacific, New Zealand, United Kingdom and German territories. This new addition to the team underlines Superights’ dynamism and ambition in the kids and family space.
Graduate from the Université de Montréal, Roche has nearly 15 years of firsthand experience in the international sale of audiovisual content dedicated to young audiences and families, and has proved her in-depth knowledge of the production and distribution sectors by working for major companies such as Cake, Mattel Inc. and Jetpack Distribution.
“I am delighted to welcome Marie-Laure in our team. Her solid international experience working in companies that are leaders in the industry is an incredibly valuable asset to Superights. We strive to offer our content owners an expert sales team, and we also work to maximize sales by being closer to our buyers thanks to our team members established all over Europe and in the US” says Nathalie Pinguet, Superights’ Deputy Managing Director.
Roche comments: “I am thrilled to join Nathalie Pinguet and the Superights team. I have been following the impressive evolution of the catalog and the company since their creation with close interest. This new position is a wonderful opportunity!”
Under the general management of Pinguet (based in Paris), Superights’ enlarged team is now organized as follows:
- Pedro Citaristi (based in Milan) will keep working with Superights by managing sales in Southern Europe while embracing his recent appointment as President of Red Monk Studio, one of the latest additions to the Superprod group.
- Jéromine Ader (based in Paris) supervises Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Inflight zones.
- Louise de Stael (based in Los Angeles), president of Superprod US Inc, subsidiary of Superprod, remains in charge of the US sales.
- Marie-Laure Roche (based in London) oversees Asia, the U.K., Germany and New Zealand. As Superights’ expansion continues, the company’s catalog keeps enriching with new acquisitions of content currently in progress.
“We are constantly on the lookout for new quality programs to complement our catalog and for which we have a special interest. We always offer tailor-made partnerships,” says Pinguet
