The Team

 

 

Marc started working straight out of school and has worked in sales within the home entertainment business since 2000 and founded Signature in 2011. Marc is involved in all areas of the business but is mainly working on acquiring new titles and endlessly trying to come up with the next best way to do something different.  When not working (which is not often) Marc is found at home with his 2 kids, at Upton Park (soon to be The Olympic Stadium), playing football or on a plane!

Gemma has been in the industry since 2003, starting at Paramount, then Warner Home Video.  She moved into the Independent sector in 2011 and joined Signature in 2013 to head up the sales force. Gemma now oversees all physical, digital and theatrical sales.  She welcomes a challenge and with the plethora of titles from Signature, she is good at juggling (not literally).  If she’s not busy, then she can be seen running around Richmond Park where she lives training for some event or another.  Her love of spreadsheets and lists keeps her, her team and her husband organised!
