ZED has hired Zoé Turpin to join its distribution team as France and sub-Saharan Africa sales manager. Turpin is in charge of the commercialization of ZED's catalog in France and sub-Saharan Africa, previously handled by Esther Pinto. She also manages documentary acquisitions for the digital department. Her arrival corresponds with a re-organization of the sales' territories within the distribution team: Lucy Le Grueic ensures sales in English-speaking territories (USA, UK, Oceania), Scandinavia, Italian-speaking territories, Spain and Portugal, as well as international project acquisitions.
Graduate of a Master's degree in Intellectual Property Rights, Zoé Turpin has over fifteen years of experience within the audiovisual sector. She worked as Sales Assistant at Newen Studio before joining The Walt Disney Company France as Sales Coordinator. From 2016, she became International Sales Manager for several French production and distribution companies, such as Balanga, ARTE France, Autour de Minuit.
Chloé Chevrier is in charge of Asia (excluding Japan), the Middle East, French-speaking Europe and Canada, Greece as well as Inflight and maritime partners. Esther Pinto now manages the territories of Eastern Europe, CIS Russia, the Baltic States, Israel and Latin America. Head of the department Charlotte Tachet is responsible for finding co-productions and pre-sales with major accounts, and for the commercialization of the catalog to pan German-speaking partners and in Japan. This renewal underlines the development strategy that ZED's president - Manuel Catteau - has been driving for nearly a decade. The growth of its Distribution team (now composed of 9 persons) testifies to the company's strong presence in international marketplace.
