Autentic Distribution adds two to sales team, focuses on investment

German sales house Autentic Distribution has made two hires for its sales team as it shifts its strategy towards investing in more content.

Mirjam Strasser

As acquisitions manager, Angelika Stebbings will be responsible for the international acquisition of high-end documentaries and factual series for the company’s sales catalogue. She is the contact for all producers who are looking for a distribution partner for their productions in all stages.

Stebbings brings experience in both acquisitions and sales of all genres at KirchMedia, EM Entertainment, YEP TV and Mainstream Media.

In addition, former Studio Hamburg employee Birte Zywko was appointed international sales manager last month. Zywko is responsible for all sales into France, Benelux, the Nordics, the UK, Spain, Portugal, Latin America and North America. She brings more than 20 years of expertise in international sales of non-fictional content.

The appointments come as Autentic looks to strengthen its expertise in sourcing, curating and financing factual content.

Head of sales and acquisitions Mirjam Strasser 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 those 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.”
