Sinking Ship Entertainment announced today it is welcoming Ayesha Girgla as the new Manager of Distribution. Girgla will report directly to Heads of Sales and Distribution, Marilyn Kynaston and Kate Sanagan, and will bring a wealth of legal experience to the Distribution Department. Internationally trained at the University of London in the U.K., she held corporate/commercial positions before moving into private practice. Her experience includes working in intellectual property, specifically in trademark, copyright infringement and social media law.
“We are so happy to be welcoming Ayesha to Sinking Ship, and think she will bring a fresh perspective to the distribution team”, says Sanagan. “Her legal experience is extremely valuable as we navigate increasingly complex rights management, and we are looking forward to working with her.”
Girgla joins the growing Distribution team at Sinking Ship, which earlier this year welcomed Mehmet Gunduz as the Manager of Sales for LATAM and CEEMA, and last year saw the addition of Jennifer Lee Hackett as Manager of Museum and Non-Theatrical Sales.
