Montse Gil is leaving Fox to take up her new position as managing director of Paramount Pictures Spain.

“Montse’s reputation in the Spanish market place is second to none,” Paramount Pictures International’s executive vice-president of international distribution and operations Roger Pollock said.

“Paramount in Spain will now benefit enormously from Montse’s wealth of experience and understanding of the Spanish marketplace for both local and foreign films.”
