Sammy Nourmand, former CEO of DCD Media, has been named chief operating officer at Keshet UK.
Nourmand joins the UK office of Keshet International as the company prepares to step up its presence in the UK market. He will report directly to Keshet International CEO Alon Shtruzman, and will have oversight of ITV’s version of the globetrotting Keshet format Rising Star, as well as other projects in the development pipeline with UK broadcasters.
In 2012, Nourmand left DCD Media and worked on a consultancy basis with various UK and U.S. based companies.
“As our UK office goes from strength to strength I’m delighted to have Sammy on board to navigate our journey during this significant growth period,” said Shtruzman in a statement.
