Global independent animation studio Zag has promoted Ian Lambur to the post of executive vice president, production, distribution and co-production, reporting to chief executive officer and founder Jeremy Zag.
“Over the past eight months, Ian has made a substantial contribution to the growth of Zag, building on his network of extensive relationships and keen understanding of current and future media distribution platforms,” says Jeremy Zag, chief executive officer and founder, Zag. “Adding oversight of production is a natural progression given Ian’s oversight of co-productions to date.”
Lambur joined Zag in November 2018, serving as senior vice president, global distribution and co-productions. With this new promotion, he also has oversight of the company’s TV productions, including several series under the Zag Heroez brand label. Lambur will continue to lead global distribution and co-production strategy of content to all platforms, including television, home entertainment and digital media.
Lambur joined Zag from The Jim Henson Company, where he served as senior vice president, global distribution. Previously, he held positions based in the U.K. at Disney Channels EMEA, serving as acquisitions manager and as director of sales at Guru Studios.
“2020 is a pivotal year for Zag with three series on air around the globe and two new series that we anticipate being greenlit in the coming months,” says Lambur. “We have tremendous co-production partners on board for each of our properties with a collective commitment to prioritize creativity and deliver series that we believe in, all featuring theatrical level animation that we are known for.”
