Tobias De Graaff (pictured), ITV Studios Global Entertainment’s (ITVS GE) director of global TV distribution, has left the company after seven years, an ITV spokesperson has confirmed to realscreen.

The spokesperson said De Graaff left ITVS GE “a few weeks ago.” Following his departure, the division has restructured, with the appointments of three regional leaders to oversee home entertainment, digital and TV operations.

Dan Gopal has been promoted from senior VP of global digital media and home entertainment to exec VP of distribution and global digital partners for EMEA, overseeing all global digital business; while Greg Johnson – currently senior VP of sales – is now exec VP and will manage home entertainment and digital across the Americas.

Finally, Augustus Dulgaro continues in his role as exec VP of Asia Pacific and his duties will now include home entertainment.

De Graaff joined ITV in 2007 as senior VP of sales for Europe, but was promoted to director of global TV distribution in late 2008.

Prior to joining the company, the exec was director of sales and acquisitions at Zodiak AB and also worked with FBC Media and Distraction Formats.
