He will also structure and oversee first-look and output deals with financiers, global partners such as the new first-look deal with eOne announced this week, and establish partnerships with new media companies on VR and digital series.

“Gregoire’s dual operational and strategic experience combined with his expertise in international co-productions and distribution make him a unique asset to our company,” said Tooley, the former president of Relativity Studios.
