Bobby Rock has joined Echo Bridge Entertainment to head its acquisitions efforts.

Echo Bridge chairman, president and CEO Michael Rosenblatt said the company, with new financing arranged by JPMorgan Securities, is looking to acquire feature films, TV series and film libraries for domestic and international distribution.

Rock, who most recently headed American Zoetrope’s Los Angeles offices, will be assisted by Leonard Shapiro, a consultant to the acquisitions team.
