Tormo was recruited with a mission to harness the company’s content and help the company expand its presence with TV channels and digital platforms worldwide, as well as build strategic relationships with international partners for co-productions.

She was previously head of sales at Studio Hari, the French animation company behind comedies such as The Owl and The Owl & Cie.

Mariam Hachmi, General Manager of La Chouette Compagnie, said: “We are very happy to welcome Adeline to the team. Over the years, Adeline has forged a solid profile in the financing and distribution of original creations on the international market.

Tormo said: “La Chouette Compagnie has built an impressive, diverse and attractive catalog of projects dedicated to children. I am happy to join Mariam, Sylvain, Guillaume and their teams in this period of growth, as the company prepares to launch major new series, including Dragon Strikers for Disney+.

Tormo will be at Mipcom in Cannes next month with a slate composed of Taki Tanuki (52×7′), Poule Mouillette (52×11′) and Theo the good tips (52×5′).
