ID Distribution expands team with the appointment of two new sales directors

Leading UK-based distributor ID Distribution has expanded its successful sales team, announcing the appointment of two new sales directors Reema Patel and Emma Simpkins. Reporting to ID Managing Director Sally Miles, Reema and Emma will take up their roles in September.
Sally Miles, Managing Director of ID Distribution, said: “Reema and Emma are joining ID at a really exciting time. These latest appointments mark ID’s remarkable growth and emergence as a serious force in the distribution market. We are delighted to welcome Emma and Reema on board, and with their combined knowledge and experience, are confident they will be important factors in driving the continued success of the business. They both come with great buyer references and they will add value for the production companies we currently represent.”
Reema Patel will be responsible for overseeing the ID sales team’s activity in Australia and Australasia, as well as working alongside Sally Miles in the US markets. Reema joins ID from 3DD Entertainment, where she was Head of Sales, managing a sales team of five. Her sales career began at Primetime TV Associates (now Southern Star Sales) where she spent nine years. After a series of promotions, Reema moved to Granada International and later Buena Vista TV International before joining 3DD in 2002.
Emma Simpkins will be responsible for overseeing the ID sales team’s activity in Europe and the UK. Emma has a wealth of sales experience, and joins ID after five years at Beyond International, including a stint in their Sydney office. She quickly moved up the ranks, rising from Executive Assistant to the Director of Sales in 2001, to take up the role of Vice President of International Sales overseeing international territories including Central and Eastern Europe, in 2003.
ID now boasts a six-strong sales team working alongside MD Sally Miles. These appointments cap a fantastically successful first year for ID Distribution, which launched at MIPCOM in October last year.
