Frank Cox Out as Head of Oz Distributor Hopscotch/Entertainment One
The co-founder of the Aussie distribution house says his departure is "bittersweet."
TORONTO -- Frank Cox has stepped down as president of Hopscotch/Entertainment One, the Australian distribution outfit, about 15 months after the Canadian parent acquired the company.
“This decision was bittersweet. I’m very proud of the Hopscotch team and grateful for the truly amazing work they’ve done to attract and showcase Australian talent over the past 10 years,” Cox said in a statement issued late Monday as Entertainment One disclosed Hopscotch partner Troy Lum will head up its Australian operations.
Cox became president of Hopscotch/eOne after its acquisition in April 2011.
He earlier founded Hopscotch Films with partners Lum and Sandie Don in 2002.
“It’s [Cox’s] commitment to the business and his unyielding hard work that shaped Hopscotch and made it an attractive and strategic opportunity for eOne,” Patrice Theroux, president of filmed entertainment at the Canadian producer and distributor, said in a statement Monday.
