Saban Promotes Distribution Exec


Saban Brands has promoted Frederic Soulie to senior vice president of global distribution.

Soulie will continue to oversee the worldwide distribution strategy of Saban Brands’ properties across the television, home entertainment and digital categories and will now also manage ongoing efforts for worldwide distribution of all of the company’s entertainment properties alongside Saban president Elie Dekel and chief operating officer Janet Scardino.

Soulie joined Saban Brands in 2011 with significant experience overseeing digital distribution and business development for Cookie Jar Entertainment and, most recently, Endemol USA.

“Over the past two years, Frederic has proven himself to be innovative, proactive and talented in all aspects of content distribution,” says Scardino, to whom Soulie reports. “We are aggressively growing our properties across not only traditional television distribution but also through online streaming and video-on-demand channels. Fred’s exceptional leadership and insight will continue to provide top-notch, strategic guidance for the continued growth of our thriving global entertainment brands.”
