International sales veteran Kevin Hoiseth has been tapped as EVP Worldwide Sales at Concourse Media.
In the new position, he’ll be responsible for leading the company’s distribution efforts to drive global sales for Concourse Film Trade, the newly bolstered film sales and financing arm of Concourse Media.
Hoseith arrives from International Film Trust, where he oversaw international sales for a slate of more than 15 titles including Werner Herzog’s Salt & Fire, which premiered at Toronto last month. Prior to IFT, he was director of international sales and marketing for Voltage Pictures, where he was responsible for selling titles such as Dallas Buyers Club and Best Picture Oscar winner The Hurt Locker. He exec produced 2012’s SEAL Team Six, which was released by the Weinstein Company, and had a stint at CAA.
Hoseith will spearhead sales and acquisitions as the company looks to expand globally, reporting to Concourse Media founders Matthew Shreder and James Andrew Felts. At TIFF, Shreder and Felts announced the launch of the company’s commercially focused film fund, which will be used to finance eight to 12 features in the $2.5M-$20M range.
“We have had the pleasure of knowing Kevin for several years, who has an impeccable reputation as a foreign sales agent and is extremely plugged into the rapidly changing distribution landscape,” said Shreder in a statement. “He is joining the team to fortify our distribution network as we service bigger productions and expand our sales arm during this new growth phase for the company.”
Concourse recently handled sales on Jeff Baena’s The Little Hours, starring Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Micucci, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon.
