Koch Media has appointed Martina Ternstrom as head of acquisitions for Northern Europe.

Formerly of Revolver, Metrodome and Magnolia Pictures, Ternstrom was one of Screen’s Future Leaders in 2012 and will be acquiring for Koch’s UK, Nordics/Scandinavia and Benelux divisions.

Ternstrom was most recently consulting for Icon Distribution UK, Australian distributor Umbrella Entertainment and Swedish production company Anagram.

Craig McNicol, Koch Media’s managing director of Northern Europe, commented: “We are thrilled to have Martina join our expanding team. Martina’s experience and ethos matches our ambitious plans as a pan-European company, and we are excited about what she will bring to the business.”

“I am delighted to be joining Koch at such an exciting time in the company’s development,” added Ternstrom.

“I have seen Koch’s UK film division grow rapidly over the past 18 months and feel this year will be pivotal in both the successful distribution of current product and acquisition of quality, new films that will push the company to the next level.”

Koch Media’s 2014 releases include Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here, Peter Chelsom’s Hector and the Search for Happiness and Jeff Baena’s zombie comedy Life After Beth.
