Zodiak Media has hired former Endemol exec Grant Ross (pictured) to serve as its exec VP of global creative development and format acquisition, in a bid to expand its formats activity.

Ross, who most recently served as global head of acquisitions at Endemol Group, will be responsible for driving Zodiak’s global formats business, leading in-house format development and acquiring international formats from around the world.

He will also co-chair Zodiak’s newly created international development board alongside Joel Karsberg, chief creative of Zodiak Nordic, through which he will be “responsible for driving creative development across all territories, turning locally produced properties into global formats,” Zodiak said.

In a statement, Zodiak Media CEO Marc-Antoine d’Halluin said: “Grant is one of the most highly regarded format experts in the world, and I am delighted to have him onboard in this newly created role to drive and expand Zodiak in the business of global formats.”
