Signature and Particular Crowd have collaborated on films in the past, including Paul Andrew Williams’s Bull. Peter Bevan, Head of Particular Crowd, will join the Signature senior management team as President of Global Strategy and Distribution.

“I’ve long admired how Marc and the team at Signature have developed their business to become market leaders,” said Bevan. “Our ambitions are aligned, and our collective strength will enable us to unlock huge potential in Latin America and beyond as we expand our slate of elevated content.”

Founder and CEO of Signature, Marc Goldberg, added: “We are delighted to welcome Peter and his expert team to the Signature family. Having worked together on some of our early Signature Films productions, we quickly recognized Particular Crowd as a distributor that had similar intentions, and we were thrilled to agree a deal to acquire the company. Peter has joined Signature at the perfect moment, and we see him leading the charge as we look to grow further globally, beyond our core UK footprint.”
