“We are really glad to have Rupi join the team. With her wide-ranging industry experience, great instincts and proven past successes, she’s the ideal candidate to grow our ever-expanding content distribution business,” said Reeds.
Sagoo will drive the distribution of Lionsgate’s television content as well as the sales of the media division’s vast library of feature films and the Miramax Films library to Japan and Korea.
“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining Celestial Tiger Entertainment and to represent Lionsgate’s award-winning TV series and fantastic library. Lionsgate has become one of the most commercially exciting studios in Hollywood, and I look forward to extending the studio’s television and digital distribution into Japan and Korea.”
Prior to CTE, Sagoo served as vice president of sales practice management at HSBC and was responsible for setting up the new client communications department in Hong Kong. She oversaw the company’s sales tools, launch and maintenance of an internal database and provided on-going support for 260 sales managers in the Asia region.
