Sinking Ship names Ayesha Girgla to head distribution

Ayesha Girgla

Toronto-based prodco Sinking Ship Entertainment has appointed Ayesha Girgla as its new distribution manager.

Girgla previously held corporate and commercial positions before moving into private practice, and is experienced in working in intellectual property, specifically in trademark, copyright infringement and social media law.

She will report directly to the heads of sales and distribution, Marilyn Kynaston and Kate Sanagan, at Sinking Ship.

Girgla’s appointment at the kids and family firm follows the arrival of sales manager for LatAm and CEEMA Mehmut Gunduz, and Jennifer Lee Hackett as manager of museum and non-theatrical sales in 2019.

Sanagan said Girgla would “bring a fresh perspective to the distribution team,” adding that “her legal experience is extremely valuable as we navigate increasingly complex rights management.”
