At his new employer Chasin will focus on film finance strategies for US and international productions.

The expanding department recently promoted Hailey Wierengo to agent and Mikey Schwartz Wright to coordinator.

Rena Ronson and Rich Klubeck continue to co-head the division and collaborate closely with colleagues Dave Flynn and Bec Smith.

Chasin had been vice-president of international sales and distribution at Relativity since July 2012 where he structured output deals, handled international sales and oversaw international distribution on Relativity productions.

Prior to Relativity Chasin served as vice-president of international distribution at the Weinstein Company in New York, working on The Artist, The Kings Speech and The Reader, among others.
