Signature Entertainment hires Head of International Sales

UK production and distribution firm Signature Entertainment has hired Ella Field as head of international sales.

Already in position, Field is based out of Signature’s UK head office, and works with and under director of international Andrew Nerger.

She was previously director of international sales at Lionsgate, where she sold titles including the John Wick franchise, Knives Out and Green Book.

Her hire follows that of Ben Jacques as head of UK production in February. 

Signature Entertainment’s Cannes sales slate includes fantasy adventure Don’t Go Below; romantic comedy She Is Love with Cyrano star Hailey Bennett; and sci-fi thriller A Million Days.

The company recently reclaimed its independent status when the original stakeholders re-bought it from private equity firm FFI, bringing Signature’s distribution, production and international divisions under one roof.
