Grant Ross, executive vice president of global creativity at Banijay Group, is leaving the company in April 2017.

The pending departure is the latest in a series of changes at the newly minted producer-distributor following its merger with Zodiak Media earlier this year.

Following the completion of the merger, Ron Henwood stepped down as Zodiak Media CEO for the UK, Belgium and Netherlands. In September, VP of global acquisitions formats and programs Fanny Baudry left the organization after eight years.

Ross began his career with Endemol in 2007, soon becoming global head of acquisitions in 2007. In 2014 he joined Zodiak Media overseeing acquisitions of international formats and leading in-house creativity and format development.  Ross also chaired the Zodiak Media creative board and subsequently remained in this role following the merger.

“I have the utmost respect for Grant and have very much enjoyed working with him both at Endemol, and recently again at Banijay. I would like to wish him all the best for the future,” said Marco Bassetti, Group CEO of Banijay, in a statement. 

“It has been a real pleasure to be part of the team at Zodiak and, most recently, at Banijay. I have been lucky enough to receive incredible support from the board and management team and all the Group companies, particularly the many talented creatives throughout the company,” Ross added.
