The former vp of international strategic and sales planning at Lionsgate will relocate from Los Angeles to New York in his new role as vp of international distribution and strategy.

Reporting to CEO Glen Basner and COO Milan Popelka, Gensollen’s duties include pricing on international sales, financial analysis and distribution strategy as well as strategic planning and business development.

His role will see him interact with several departments including acquisitions and production, specifically the structuring of finance plans for FilmNation’s internal productions.

“Gregoire’s international distribution experience combined with his expertise in sales pricing and motion picture deal analysis make him a great addition to the team,” Basner said. “He has developed great relationships with a number of foreign distributors, producers and financiers which will serve him well in this new role.”
