Entertainment One Family and Entertainment One Licensing (eOne), has appointed former Nerd Corps exec Jillianne Reinseth as VP of creative affairs for eOne Family.

Based in Toronto, Reinseth steps into the new role on March 2. She will lead creative affairs for eOne Family and oversee the division’s linear content acquisition, development and production. She will work with eOne Family’s distribution, licensing and merchandising leadership globally, to ensure the content acquired and produced by the division fully matches the needs of the market.
