Joel Denton returns to Red Arrow
Industry veteran Joel Denton is returning to Germany’s Red Arrow Studios as acting president of its distribution arm.
Denton joins Red Arrow Studios International today, based in London. He will work with current president Bo Stehmeier to ensure a smooth transition before he leaves to rejoin European producer and distributor Off The Fence later this year.
Denton was co-founder and MD of Red Arrow Studios’ operations in the Uk for two years from 2011.
He has also spent time as exec VP and marketing director of international sales at Hallmark Entertainment, president of production and distribution at RHI Entertainment, and as MD of international content sales and partnerships at A+E Networks – a role he left in 2017. He has since been consulting in the television industry.
James Baker, president and co-CEO of Red Arrow Studios, said: “I am delighted that Joel is coming back to Red Arrow, to lead Red Arrow Studios International. His experience of international television and distribution will prove invaluable whilst we navigate one of the biggest social and economic challenges of modern times.
“I would also like to thank Bo for his fantastic contribution to the business over the last five years. We all wish him all the very best for the future.”
Denton said: “I am excited to join Red Arrow and have the opportunity to work again with James and the rest of the talented team. It is currently a challenging time to be working in the international media marketplace, but with quality shows and producers, an excellent team and the backing and support of ProSiebenSat.1, I believe Red Arrow Studios International is well-placed to continue to grow, and I am really looking forward to getting started.”
