Dick Clark Productions has its eye on global expansion, and to that end, is launching Dick Clark Productions International, according to The Hollywood Reporter. DCP has tapped industry veteran Mark Rafalowski in the newly created role of executive VP, International. In this role, he will be responsible for growing the division’s distribution and content development.
The new division will be based out of the company’s Santa Monica headquarters, and Rafalowski will report to DCP president Mike Mahan.
“Mark’s track record in both domestic and international distribution makes him the perfect executive to oversee our vision for a full service in-house international division,” said Mahan. “He understands the international television landscape and the importance of having the right partners on a global scale to create and grow TV brands worldwide.”
“With the ever-increasing global consumption of TV content and Dick Clark Productions’ strategic growth trajectory, it is a perfect time to join the team under the superior leadership of [CEO] Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan,” said Rafalowski. “International distribution gives us the ability to develop and grow all areas of the television business from reality and scripted to formats and acquisitions. We look forward to building on our current relationships and actively growing the business internationally.”
Rafalowski served as DCP’s VP, Business Development in the late 1990s before taking on the role of president at Rive Gaunche Television from 2003 to 2009. He also served as COO at Radical Studios.
