The Salt Company has appointed James Norrie as head of international.

Norrie was previously head of sales at Capitol Films and previously worked at Icon International.

Salt, recently relaunched from the previous sales incarnation Lumina Films, is part of the International Film Collective.

The company's directors and founders are Samantha Horley, Robert Bevan and Cyril Megret.

Salt's slate includes Rebecca Miller's The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee, starring Robin Wright Penn and Keanu Reeves, and documentary Big River Man, both in post-production.

'There are few salespeople I have wanted to work with as much as James,' said Samantha Horley in a statement. 'He is simply one of the best in terms of experience and achievement. Not only that, he is also a top bloke, so we are very happy that he is now our top bloke.'

Norrie added: 'I am very excited to be joining the team at Salt. They have consistently achieved fantastic results on the sales side that confirm that their movies are what the buyers are looking for. I am looking forward to helping them build on their successes.'
