Neil Marshall, previously sales director at Warner Brothers Pictures International UK (WB), has been promoted to the role of deputy managing director.

He will report to Josh Berger, president & managing director of Warner Bros. UK.

In his new role, Marshall will be increasingly involved in the day-to-day running of the division with Berger and the senior management team. He will maintain full leadership of the sales team and technical operations.

Prior to joining WB, Marshall worked for six years at Pathe as sales director. He has also spent 12 years working in various UK & European theatrical sales roles at Sony Pictures.

Berger said: 'Neil's promotion is richly-deserved. He has done an outstanding job with our sales operation, leading it with great skill and determination over the last two years. With this new, expanded brief, he will now have the opportunity to play an even greater role in the management of our UK business.'
