Canada's Decode taps Emmanuelle Bon

Will handle Benelux, Scandinavia, French-speaking Europe

TORONTO -- Emmanuelle Bon has joined Canadian distributor Decode as the territory manager for French-speaking Europe, the Benelux and Scandinavia, the company said Monday.

Bon comes to Decode, a division of TV producer DHX Media, from Entertainment Rights, where she oversaw sales to French-speaking territories and the Benelux.

Bon, who will be based in London, earlier completed acquisitions stints at Canal J and Fox Kids in Paris.

Last month, DHX Media signed a deal to merge with Toronto-based producer-distributor Entertainment One as part of a reverse takeover valued at about CAN$68 million ($53.5 million).
