Metronome Film & Television Finland’s interim managing director Tarja Pääkkönen is taking on the MD role permanently, as parent company Shine Group rebrands the prodco as Shine Finland.

Pääkkönen became interim MD in June after former MD Milla Bruneau left the company to join Yellow Film & Television. She worked alongside co-interim MD Mika Toivainen, who has since been named as financial manager.

The rebranding follows a management restructuring that saw Anne Wahlström appointed as creative director for productions; Tatu Ferchen as creative director for formats; and Alex Laszlo as creative director for development.

“Our fresh, creative team of Anne Wahlström, Tatu Ferchen and Alex Laszlo has renewed our operations, and I believe this will quickly become evident to our clients and our TV audiences,” Pääkkönen said in a statement. “The change of the company name to Shine Finland is the external sign of this internal revitalization.”

Shine acquired Nordic producer Metronome Film & Television’s 15 subsidiaries in 2009. The Finnish arm’s credits include the local version of MasterChef and Junior MasterChef.
