Revolver taps Shear as sales director


LONDON -- U.K. indie distributor Revolver Entertainment has holstered David Shear to drive its theatrical sales ambitions in the U.K. and Ireland, the company said Thursday.

Shear is set to start June 11 as sales director, having been picked out from international market regular The Works where he was head of sales.

Shear will contribute to Revolver's plans for continued growth in the U.K. and Eire theatrical markets.

Before joining the Works U.K. Distribution, Shear was head of sales at ContentFilm, Winchester Film Distribution and the Feature Film Co.

Shear said he looked forward to "playing a major part in taking Revolver to the next level in the U.K. theatrical market."

Revolver Entertainment managing director Justin Marciano said, "With his excellent theatrical experience and exhibitor relationships, David is the perfect compliment to our existing Revolver team."

The company's upcoming theatrical release slate includes "Tell No One," "Legacy" and "Lagerfeld Confidential."
