Endemol has announced the launch of a new Nordic office, to be headquartered in Stockholm and led by CEO Michael Porseryd, formerly executive vice president and chief operating officer of Metronome Group. Endemol Nordic will create new shows for the local and international markets and will also produce local versions of Endemol’s global formats for broadcasters in territories across the region including Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. ‘This represents the first time Endemol has had a fully owned operation in this key region of the international market,’ said Endemol Group chairman and CEO Ynon Kreiz. ‘The launch of Endemol Nordic will create another European platform for our content portfolio and introduce a further source of creativity within our global network. Michael Porseryd has an exceptional track record of building businesses and delivering ratings in the region and we’re extremely fortunate to have someone of his calibre leading this new venture.’
