TORONTO – Former SODEC exec Jean-Philippe Normandeau has joined Montreal indie producer/distributor Incendo as COO.

The hire comes a month after president Jean Bureau bought out co-founder Stephen Greenberg to take control of Canada's largest TV distributor, via a pact with Twentieth Century Fox, Fox/Incendo Television Distribution.

Incendo also handles theatrical distribution in Quebec for Paramount films.

Normandeau was most recently general manager, financing and tax credits, at SODEC, the Quebec provincial government's film financier.

While at that post, he promoted Quebec's film tax credit to Hollywood film studios.
