After six years as managing director of ITV Studios France, Francois Florentiny has stepped down from the post.
Florentiny (pictured) was just 30 when he was first appointed to the top job at the Paris-based production center in 2010. In leaving the position, he will pursue new projects, a company spokesperson said in a statement. No further information was provided on the pending move.
Florentiny leaves the French operation “well positioned for its next phase of growth,” according to the company. It’s currently producing nearly 200 hours of programming per year, including documentaries, unscripted and formats.
“We would like to thank him and wish him the very best for the future,” the spokesperson added.
Before joining ITV, Florentiny was previously founder of Flow Productions and a creative consultant for numerous international productions such as Télé Image, Coyote, Extreme Sports Channel, (ChelloMedia), Scarlett Productions, NRJ12, Zadig Productions, ARTE, TLC, Nordisk and Banijay.
