In addition, DCD had elevated David Green to executive chairman and John Cusins to non-executive director, while Tarik Wildman continues as non-executive director of the company. All are existing directors of DCD Media.
Nourmand will remain CEO of DCD-owned reality, entertainment and formats producer September Films for the time being. He has been a director of DCD Media since November 2011, and was acting COO of the group from 2009 to 2010.
Green, who has been CEO of DCD Media since 2009, will continue to merge his corporate role with a look to expanding DCD Media into the U.S. television market.
“David has been a colleague and a mentor to me for several years and I am delighted to have the opportunity to build on the foundations he has put in place at DCD,” said Nourmand.
“Sammy has been a dynamic force for change within DCD where his wide-ranging expertise and in-depth knowledge of the television industry mark him as the perfect person to take the company to the next level, and enable me to concentrate on driving DCD’s U.S. business, keeping it at the forefront of the Group’s growth,” added Green.
