UK distributor Metrodome continues to restructure staff following Media Pro's acquisition of a 61.4% share in the company.

James Brown takes on the newly created role of head of acquisitions, where he will work alongside Kate Edwards, who has been promoted and will be running the business affairs department. Brown formerly headed up acquisitions for Tartan Films, following previous positions with The Works and Celsius.

Heike Wolkerstorfer, also formerly of Tartan Films, joins as theatrical sales manager with immediate effect. John Ramchandani will run the home entertainment sales department as senior national accounts manager.

Jezz Vernon takes on responsibility for the operations department and continues as head of marketing and operations.

Helen Almond has taken on the newly created role of TV and new media manager. She will be responsible for exploiting the rights to Metrodome's acquisitions and library across these platforms.

Metrodome announced the promotion of Sara Frain to the position of general manager for distribution in July.

Metrodome CEO Peter Urie cast the changes as preparation for anticipated growth in 2009: 'Metrodome has already achieved a return to profitability for the first half of 2008. This is a hugely exciting time for the company.'
