Peace Arch pres adds new responsibilities


TORONTO -- Peach Arch Entertainment president John Flock is being given the addition titles of COO and boardroom director.

Toronto-based Peace Arch said that Flock will retain the title of president as the indie producer continues to ramp up film and TV production and diversify into distribution.

The veteran executive joined Peace Arch in May 2004 after supervising production at Cinefinance LLC. He most recently launched Peace Arch into direct theatrical and DVD distribution in the U.S. market.

Flock will join Jeff Sagansky in the Peace Arch boardroom. The former CBS Entertainment boss was named co-chairman of the Canadian producer just last week (HR 10/9).
