Pasante Starts MGM Latin Beat.

MGM Worldwide Television Distribution established its first direct-sales operation for the Latin American region, appointing Mary Ann Pasante to serve as vp of Latin American Television Sales. To support this expansion, MGM will open a branch office in Atlanta, Georgia, where Pasante will be based. She will report to Simon Sitton, senior vp of International Pay and Free Television. Pasante will oversee all sales and distribution of MGM product in Latin America.

The latest move caps an 18-month long conversion of the company's international free-TV operations to direct sales. MGM relocated its European office in Paris to London and has consolidated its Hong Kong office with its existing office in Sydney.
