Recently appointed to the position of Managing Director, International Content Distribution, Marielle Zuccarelli attends her first MIPTV for the company. Based in New York, Zuccarelli is responsible for managing the growth of A+E Networks' content sales activities outside the U.S. Zuccarelli will manage the distribution of A+E Networks' 10,000+-hour library which adds over 1,200 hours annually. Working with A+E Networks' Regional Managing Directors in London and Singapore, she will oversee a sales staff based in New York, the UK, and Singapore, as well as sales representation in Tokyo, Mumbai and Montreal. Zuccarelli reports to Sean Cohan, Sr. Vice President, International for A+E Networks.

"We are very pleased to have Marielle join A+E Networks to helm our experienced and talented content sales team that includes execs Jonathan South, Ellen Lovejoy, and Ling Sze Gan, amongst others," said Cohan. "We are confident that Marielle's entrepreneurial mindset and diverse content sales experience will allow her to have an immediate impact, especially timely given our catalogue expansion. I look forward to working with her."

Just prior to MIPTV Zuccarelli bolstered A+E's international sales staff with the appointment of Hana Zidek as Director, Content Sales, EMEA, and in addition, Joanne Lim has been promoted to Manager, Content Sales, Asia. Ms. Zidek joins A+E Networks from Lionsgate Entertainment where she managed sales for the Nordics and other territories from the company's London office. Previous to that, she oversaw program acquisitions for Viasat. Based in A+E Networks' London office, Ms. Zidek will be responsible for managing content sales in the Nordic and Middle East regions, and will report to Jonathan South, Vice President, Content Sales, EMEA.

Based in A+E Networks' Singapore office, Ms. Lim will continue to oversee program sales throughout Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. She reports to Ling Sze Gan, Senior Director, Content Sales, Asia. Prior to joining A+E Networks in 2010, Ms. Lim held positions at BBC Worldwide and ITV.

"I am happy to welcome Hana to A+E Networks," said Zuccarelli. "We have a seasoned content sales team in place and her background will further strengthen our efforts in the Nordic territories and the Middle East." Zuccarelli continued, "Joanne has proven to be an integral player for us in Asia, and I'm very pleased to announce her promotion. Joanne has played an important role in expanding and strengthening our foothold in the region and will make a significant contribution as we ramp up our efforts to build our presence in Asia."

Zuccarelli joins A+E Networks from GRB Entertainment where she was President, International Distribution, overseeing all sales, marketing and acquisition for GRB Entertainment.
