MUMBAI: Erica Motley has been appointed as international acquisitions consultant of Icon Entertainment International.
She will report to the company‘s new chief executive Stewart Till. She will work closely with Chloe Sizer, head of development, and Toby Hill, head of UK acquisitions, to acquire new projects for international sales.
Her appointment is part of Icon‘s first moves since it was acquired by New York-based Access Industries last November.
Motley previously worked with Till at United International Pictures, where she was vice-president of international acquisitions when Till was chief executive. At UIP, she was part of a worldwide distribution team and involved in such projects Elite Squad, Torrente3 and Old Boy.
Commenting on Motley‘s appointment, Till said, "She has fantastic relations with the US filmmaking community and will be a great asset to the company. In her role she will be the point of contact for all US-based producers, agents and financiers."
Motley began her film career as an international acquisition executive at HBO. She later joined Fox, where she launched channels and negotiated deals with film studios, international sales agents and independent producers.
Most recently, she has been working as the packaging and distribution consultant for the American Film Company on Robert Redford‘s The Conspirator.
