Global producer-distributor Endemol Shine Group has named Lisa Perrin (pictured, left) and Ana Langenberg (right) as CEO and COO of Endemol Shine Creative Networks, respectively.

In her role as CEO of the recently created division, Perrin – who was appointed to the post of MD at Endemol Shine Creative Networks in March – will now lead the department with a focus on “the coordination and acceleration of IP around the group,” while assisting its operating companies. She will report to Endemol Shine Group president Tim Hincks.

Perrin first boarded the Shine Group in 2009 as creative director of Shine TV before joining the internal format division Shine Network where she was named MD in 2014. She has previously served as head of entertainment commissioning at UKTV and director of popular factual at Tiger Aspect.

Meanwhile, Langenberg will move into the role of COO from her previous post as global head of format distribution to support Perrin. Her remit will include overseeing the department’s overall commercial operations, including format sales, acquisitions and music.

Langenberg played a key role in launching Endemol’s affiliates in Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Colombia, while also playing a significant part in the global roll out of such international formats as Big Brother, Wipeout and Deal or No Deal?. She joined Endemol in 1998 and rose through the ranks to become senior licensing manager and senior manager of format distribution.

The Amsterdam-headquartered Endemol Shine Creative Networks banner will provide “creative and commercial cross-platform format support” across the company’s unscripted and scripted divisions.

Endemol Shine International will continue to handle finished programming sales for group formats.

“These promotions acknowledge the hard work to date and the wider role the division now has serving the group across different genres and platforms,” said Hincks in a statement.
