Jodi Mackie has joined the D360 team in Toronto after 10 years with Breakthrough, which has seen a string of executives leave the company in 2017.

Mackie will be tasked with driving revenue growth across D360’s catalogue through content sales with a focus on attracting new titles for distribution and developing production and content creation relationships.

The exec will make her D360 market debut at Asia TV Forum this month and will handle sales into Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Scandinavia.

“D360 is poised for growth across all channels and genres and it’s the perfect time to bring in the expertise and network that Jodi possesses,” said Diane Rankin, senior VP, international at D360.
