Canadian animation producer Guru Studio has boosted its sales team by promoting from within and hiring a former Portfolio Entertainment and Gusto Worldwide Media exec.

Jonathan Abraham has been upped to VP of sales and business development, expanding his remit beyond content sales and into consumer products. Corey Caplan, meanwhile, is joining the Toronto-based firm as director of international sales.

Reporting to president and executive creative director Frank Falcone, Abraham will focus on Guru’s strategic sales efforts, including content sales, licensing and merchandising, consumer products and new business ventures.

Caplan will report to Abraham and will be responsible for the company’s international content sales. He has more than a decade of experience in television distribution as the director of sales at Canadian prodco and sales house Portfolio Entertainment. More recently, he was senior director of sales at Gusto Worldwide Media.

Guru announced the promotion of Rachel Marcus to VP of creative development earlier this year, with the company preparing to deliver a line-up of new originals to the market in the coming months.
