SANTA BARBARA: Foothill Entertainment has promoted Elizabeth Stephens to VP of sales and development.
In her new role, Stephens will work under Jo Kavanagh-Payne, Foothill’s president. She is responsible for expanding the company’s linear and non-linear distribution footprint, while also concentrating on new strategies for the rest of the world. In addition to her distribution duties, she will continue to be involved in co-production.
This promotion comes less than two years after Stephens was elevated to director of sales and development. She first joined the company in fall 2008.
“Elizabeth has been quietly amassing an impressive resume of deals and contacts throughout the world,” said Kavanagh-Payne. “This promotion is well deserved and merely reflects the real growth she has attained since her last promotion.”
