BBC Studios Americas Jan. 19 announced the appointment of Dina Vangelisti as EVP of content sales. The appointment marks a shift to a Los Angeles-helmed sales division for the company, where Vangelisti will establish new, and grow existing, partnerships with customers for content sales and co-productions across both global platforms and U.S. networks.
Vangelisti will report directly to Rebecca Glashow, president of BBC Studios Americas. The appointment of Vangelisti rounds out Glashow’s executive team as she prepares BBC Studios’ U.S. operation for the next stage of growth.
“When I joined BBC Studios, one of my top priorities was to structure the business for future growth by fortifying our coveted content sales and co-production business,” Gladshow said in a statement. “Dina’s proven leadership capabilities and deep-rooted connections to the Los Angeles creative community are exactly what BBC Studios needs to take our partnerships to a new level.”
Previous to this role, Vangelisti led the domestic television division at Paramount Pictures Worldwide, where she developed business strategies for the global sales team with digital platforms and broadcasters. Prior to Paramount, she held senior leadership roles at First Look Studios, ABC/FOX Family Channel, and CBC International Sales.
