ProSiebenSat.1 Media has announced the appointment of Dr. Jan Kemper as its new chief financial officer.
The newly appointed CFO (pictured) will join the media company from online retailer Calando, where he currently heads its finance, real estate and indirect procurement divisions.
In announcing Kemper’s hire, Dr. Werner Brandt, chairman of the supervisory board of ProSiebenSat.1 Media noted that Kemper’s success in rapidly growing operations at Calando, which included the successful launch of an IPO, inspired the decision to bring him on.
Kemper will take over from ProSiebenSat.1 Media’s current CFO Dr. Gunnar Wiedenfels, who will be joining Discovery Communications in New York in March 2017.
Kemper steps into the role on June 1, 2017. Ralf Peter Gierig will replace Wiedenfels until Kemper joins in June.
