Factual-focused Autentic Distribution has added two execs to its roster, who will work across acquisitions and sales.
Angelika Stebbings will oversee the international acquisition of high-end documentaries and factual series for Autentic’s sales catalogue, while Birte Zywko will lead sales into France, Benelux, Nordics, UK, Lat Am, Spain, Portugal and North America.
Stebbings has previously worked for European firms including KirchMedia, EM Entertainment, YEP TV and Mainstream Media, while Zywko was most recently at Studio Hamburg.
Mirjam Strasser, head of sales & acquisitions at Autentic’s distribution arm, said: “The content demand is high and it’s getting more difficult to source factual programs with the quality we need for our clients.
“I am thrilled about the expansion of our team with these absolute professionals in their fields. With the expertise of Angelika and Birte, we can evolve with the ever-changing market and continue to curate top-notch factual productions for our sales catalogue and channels.”
