Sally Caplan Leaving Entertainment One's International Sales Office

The veteran movie exec joined the Canadian producer/distributor in November 2011 and will leave the London office at the end of May to focus on production.

TORONTO - Sally Caplan, a veteran of the U.K. and international movie business, is leaving Entertainment One as managing director of its international movie sales operations.

Caplan joined the Canadian distributor in Nov. 2011 to launch the international sales effort out of the U.K. That moved eOne Film International’s headquarters from Toronto to London.

Caplan will leave the company at the end of May. While with Entertainment One, Caplan worked with worldwide acquisitions lead Lara Thompson.

“Sally leaves us to focus on production, and we wish her the best of luck,” said Entertainment One’s Nelson Kuo-Lee, COO and executive vp of the global film group.

"I leave behind a great international team and thank them for all their support, hard work and inspiration. I wish them and everyone else at eOne success in this exciting time of expansion," Caplan said in her own statement Monday.

Before joining the Canadian distributor, Caplan ran her own consultancy, and earlier headed the Premiere Fund of the U.K. Film Council for five years. 

eOne Films International executive vp Charlotte Mickie and head of sales Charlotte Van Weede will take over Caplan's duties on an interim basis.
