Metrodome Distribution has promoted Simon Weavers to head of DVD sales.

Weavers, who joined the company in 2008, was previously senior national account manager.

John Ramchandani will work closely with Weavers until the end of the year, handing over. Reporting directly to Metrodome managing director Jezz Vernon, Weavers will assume the role from Jan 1.

Ramchandani said Weavers had “helped to steer DVD sales through challenging times in the home entertainment industry”.

Metrodome Distribution’s forthcoming home entertainment slate includes Jo Nesbo’s Jackpot and Room 237, a documentary about what fans of The Shining read into Kubrick’s horror masterpiece.
