FremantleMedia is one company that isn’t content with standing still and as such has announced the appointment of a President to oversee their French operations. With the company since 2002, Monica Galer knows the creator and producer of entertainment brands inside out.
After being given the President hat, Galer said, “France is an incredibly vibrant, creative and important market in the international television landscape. FremantleMedia France is responsible for creating and producing some of the country’s most popular entertainment, and I am looking forward to the opportunity of working exclusively with the French team as we expand upon our considerable creative and commercial success.”
Galer has been working in France for some time now as CEO of FremantleMedia’s operations in Northern and Southern Europe. Her role now concentrates solely on Fremantle’s tasks in France and will oversee overall management, strategy and the business development of FremantleMedia France.
Tony Cohen, CEO, FremantleMedia said: “Monica Galer is one of the architects of the European format and production industry, with formidable experience and a significant track record of success across Europe. Her creative leadership has resulted in substantial renewal across our Northern and Southern European businesses, and I am very confident that her renewed and exclusive focus on France will assure us of further success and growth in this key territory.”Monica’s appointment to this role is an indication of the strategic focus we are placing on maintaining momentum in France.”
The news comes after only last month they announced some stark changes to the company in Australia. This all since they started to become more visible in the online gaming industry thanks to a number of branding deals they signed.
