Avalon’s Tess Charman joins Eccho Rights to lead European sales

Tess Charman

Eccho Rights has hired Avalon’s Tess Charman to lead its distribution across Europe.

Charman has been named director of sales for continental Europe at Eccho and becomes the second addition for the Night Train Media-owned company in as many weeks, following the hire of Little Dot Studios’ Caitlin Meek-O’Connor as commercial digital director.

Charman, who starts 1 September, was formally VP of EMEA at Avalon Distribution and has previously worked at Entertainment One, MGM and Warner Bros. International Production.

She will be handling continental Europe and pan-regional sales (excluding Iberia), focusing on Eccho’s slate of English and Nordic language titles.

Eccho Rights was acquired by Night Train Media in 2021, three years after the distribution firm had been sold to Korea’s CJ ENM.
