Paris-based indie Gedeon Programmes has promoted line producer Marie Thiry (pictured, center) to new media and museography producer, added Sarah Verdier (right) as her assistant, and hired Virginie Gibbaud (left) as a producer.

Guibbaud will produce documentaries and docudramas for Gedeon. She is a former associate producer with Films d’Ici 2 and has also worked for 13 Productions and Mille et Une Films. She will focus on developing and producing history films.

In Gedeon’s new media and museography department,  Thiry – who joined Geodeon a year ago to help develop and establish the department – has been promoted to new media and museography producer and will report to department head Stéphane Millière. Verdier also joins Gedeon as Thiry’s assistant, but will also be in charge of development in the new media department.

Verdier previously worked for numerous production companies that specialize in documentaries and short films, and at the Cinquatre and Centre Pompidou.
