ITV Studios Global Entertainment has announced the expansion of its Australian based sales team as Dan Edwards, former Endemol Sales Director for Asia, joins as Senior Sales Executive, Australia & Japan, commencing in January 2012.
Reporting to Augustus Dulgaro, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific; Dan will be responsible for handling the distribution of the ITV Studios Global Entertainment portfolio, which includes more than 40,000 hours of original and formatted programming.
Previously Sales Director for Asia at Endemol Worldwide Distribution and Programme Buyer at XYZ Networks, Dan will be based at ITV’s Australian office in Sydney.
Augustus Dulgaro commented today: "ITV Studios Global Entertainment are delighted to expand our Sydney based team with Dan’s appointment. After almost ten years in the distribution business he brings a wealth of experience to ITV, and a great local knowledge gained during his time in Hong Kong and Australia. We are seeing strong marketplace demand throughout Australia and Japan across all genres, and I’m looking forward to working with Dan to expand our activities in these regions."
Dan Edwards added: "ITV Studios Global Entertainment’s content portfolio is renowned throughout the world and with its breadth and diversity, presents some fantastic opportunities in Australia and Japan. With the recent growth in these two dynamic territories, it’s an exciting time to be joining the Sydney based team as we aim to grow the presence of ITV Studios Global Entertainment even further in the region. I look forward to showcasing this high-quality content to local broadcasters."
Following several years experience in television production, Dan’s distribution career commenced at the Australian distributor Southern Star International.
