Kirk D'Amico, president of Myriad Pictures and J&M Entertainment, has been appointed a board member of Frankfurt-based entertainment concern IN-motion, which has acquired both Myriad and J&M since floating on Germany's Neuer Markt in August.

D'Amico and IN-motion's Philip von Alvensleben will be responsible at board level for the company's film and TV operations.

Prior to founding Myriad, D'Amico served as executive vice president for worldwide sales and co-productions at Village Roadshow Pictures and president of international sales at The Samuel Goldwyn Company. He also managed production and distribution activities for New York-based Videfilm International.
