Her talent, expertise and experience in the production of content, whether it be in unscripted, documentary or drama, will be an invaluable asset in the development of ITV Studios France. She is an excellent addition to our ambitious roadmap with the ITV teams. I would like to thank Sébastien Petiot for his tremendous contribution to the success of ITV Studios France over the past 6 years. The entire ITV Studios France team joins me in recognizing a great professional with an impeccable mindset. We wish him all the best for the future.”
Céline Roux: “I am very happy to join the ITV Group. I would like to thank Thierry Lachkar and Lisa Perrin for their trust. I am looking forward to working with the ITV Studios France team and bringing all my experience to the table. The expansion of the company's business scope is extremely exciting and promising. We have a lot of great projects to accomplish and worlds to explore together. This new adventure promises to be exciting."
Sébastien Petiot: “Thanks to the talent and dedication of the teams, and the support of the Group, I have had 6 exceptional years in this beautiful house that is ITV. I would like to thank Thierry Lachkar and Lisa Perrin for their unfailing confidence and wish Céline every success. I am delighted that she has agreed to join ITV Studios. Her great human and professional qualities will be decisive in enabling Thierry and the teams to achieve the ambitious goals of this new chapter for ITV.”
