Nicholas Coppermann has been named MD of Endemol France, reporting to Virginie Calmels, who was recently promoted to Endemol Group chief operating officer.
Coppermann’s appointment is effective immediately and Calmels will now share her time between her responsibilities as chairman of Endemol France and the position she has taken up internationally at Group level.
In his new role, Coppermann will take responsibility for the day-to-day operational management of Endemol France, which has recent credits including TF1′s Secret Story, The Money Drop and les 12 Coups de Midi; and M6′s Undercover Boss.
His previous positions included serving as secretary general of programs and scripted programs at M6; CEO of Zodiak Media’s Paris-based subsidiary Tele Images Productions; and – most recently – general manager and partner at TV, film and distribution company Robin & Co. in Paris.
In a statement, Calmels said: “Nicholas’s operational expertise and experience will be a great asset to Endemol France as we continue our successful period of growth and diversification.”
The news comes after Endemol recently announced a new management board, with Just Spee appointed as CEO and Tim Hincks becoming president.
