Samantha Traub, senior VP of business and legal affairs and general counsel, has been named COO, while Michel Pratte, senior VP of Boat Rocker Ventures, has been made CRO.

Traub joined Boat Rocker Media, then known as Temple Street Productions, in 2007 as VP of business and legal affairs. As COO, she adds management of Boat Rocker Studios’ production team to her remit, managing all legal issues on behalf of the company.

Pratte, meanwhile, will oversee Boat Rocker’s rights, brands and ventures divisions while continuing to lead the company’s M&A and corporate development activity. He joined the firm in 2008.

Traub and Pratte will continue to report to Boat Rocker CEO John Young.

Temple Street Productions became Boat Rocker Media in February following a “significant” capital investment from Fairfax Financial.

This year it has acquired the animation and children’s content companies Jam Filled and Radical Sheep, which, along with Orphan Black producer Temple Street, fall under Boat Rocker Studios.
The company said it will increase its growth through expanded production and distribution operations and strategic acquisitions in the future.
