Thom Chapman, former VP of Business Development and Sales at Toonbox Entertainment, is DHX Media’s new territory manager. Reporting to DHX Media’s SVP Distribution Josh Scherba, Chapman will be responsible for sales to English-speaking Canada and the Asia Pacific territories. He will focus on the expansion of DHX Media’s properties across all platforms in these key territories.
At ToonBox Entertainment, Chapman oversaw financing, PR, sales, deliveries, and advertising for the company’s animated projects.
