The new bureau will focus on the company’s cinema business and handle sales, customer service and operations for Latin America, including Central America and South America.  

RealD has appointed Sean Spencer as director of cinema, Latin America. Spencer will oversee the Rio de Janeiro office, heading sales and managing communications with exhibitors who use RealD technology in the territory.

“This new office will increase RealD’s presence across Latin America and better position us to grow our business in the territory.”
