Banijay has confirmed Peter Langenberg as group COO, completing its central leadership team structure.
Alongside oversight of Banijay Brands and IT, Langenberg will have operational responsibility for the U.K., India, Benelux, Russia and Poland. Langenberg joined Banijay as COO back in November 2016 and has since led operations across the global footprint, while building synergies and increasing development opportunities.
CEO Marco Bassetti commented: “Peter has been a key figure for Banijay in the acquisition process and subsequent integration. A valued member of our exec team, he is now at the forefront of our operations worldwide, leading a number of departments and a vast proportion of our footprint. Not only is he a great asset for the business but his appointment marks the completion of building an incredibly talented central leadership team.”
Langenberg said: “The acquisition of Endemol marked a significant shift in scale for us as a business and with that comes vast opportunity and innovation, as we look to pull together the strengths of both organizations. While the integration has long been underway, we continue to assess the new needs of the business to marry the best talent and systems and looking to 2021, we are all confident we’ll be operationally strong, with the best people and products in place to drive quality and efficiency across the board.”
