Banijay Group VP of global acquisitions formats and programs Fanny Baudry is leaving the organization after eight years to pursue other opportunities.

Baudry served as one of the first employees to board the Banijay banner when it was launched in 2008 by Stéphane Courbit. She was responsible for building the acquisitions division and acquiring non-scripted formats for Banijay’s 21 subsidiaries, including Bunim/Murray, Air Production and Nordisk Film TV.

Additionally, she played a key role in launching Banijay International, the shingle’s acquisition and distribution arm, in 2010 alongside Karoline Spodsberg.

Having served as VP of global acquisitions formats and programs since 2012, Baudry spearheaded the company’s push into acquiring finished programming, co-productions and new business opportunities. She was responsible for inking such deals as Banijay’s output deal with Lionsgate/CBS’s Pop channel; the innovative CBC creative partnership The Format Incubator; output deals with France’s La Grosse Equipe and La Concepteria, among others.

A replacement for Baudry has not yet been announced.

“I am very proud to have been part of the creation and growth of what has become one of the major player in the industry,” said Baudry in a statement. “I’d especially like to thank Stéphane Courbit for his vision, support and leadership over the years.”
