Kim Overall Appointed Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's Senior VP for Northern Europe
In a slight restructuring of its European operations, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has appointed Kim Overall to senior vp Northern Europe.
Andrew Armstrong, a 14-year vet who previously held the position, is leaving the company this month.
According to SPHE, Overall’s new responsibilities will include “leading and implementing the commercial strategies and program development throughout the U.K. and Northern Europe while ensuring strategic alignment among all new release, catalog and TV releases for the company.”
She will also be a key member of the newly created SPHE Worldwide Commercial Team.
"Not only will [Overall] drive our business in Northern Europe, but she will be a key partner in driving our global strategies, innovation and account business into the future,” said Matt Brown, executive vp worldwide commercial, to whom Overall will report. “Kim’s impressive leadership both in launching the joint venture with Universal as well as growing the business into a market-leading position in Australia and New Zealand has made her extremely valuable to the company.”
Overall comes to the European position after a four-year stint as managing director for Australia and New Zealand. Other home entertainment experience includes stints at Paramount Home Entertainment and DreamWorks Home Entertainment.
