Heading into Toronto, Jason Blum of fledgling Blumhouse International announced he has hired the former Exclusive Media executive as svp of international sales and distribution.

Kim will report to Blum and introduce buyers in Toronto to the micro-budget genre title Visions, which Kevin Greutert will direct once principal photography gets underway in October.

Kim will handle sales in the UK, Australia, Germany, France, Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Scandinavia, Spain, Latin America, Switzerland and Canada.

IM Global will handle remaining territories through its servicing deal with Blumhouse International (BHI).

BHI launched in Cannes and has a worldwide distribution and servicing deal with IM Global and works on films outside Blumhouse’s first-look deal with Universal Pictures.

Kim most recently served as vp of international sales and distribution at Exclusive Media and played a key role in building the China strategy.

Before that she worked in international sales at Paramount Vantage and was director of corporate development at Sony Pictures Entertainment and an investment banking analyst at Credit Suisse First Boston.
