Schlick steps down as SBS CEO

March 8, 2013

Georgette Schlick, CEO of Dutch broadcasting company SBS, is standing down after 15 months in the role. Schlick joined the company in October 2011 after the three SBS channels in the Netherlands – SBS6, Net 5 and Veronica – were bought out by Finnish firm Sanoma Media and Dutch production company Talpa.

She will be replaced on an interim basis by Hans Edin, who is currently president of Sanoma’s Finnish TV and radio operation Nelonen Media.

Reports in the Netherlands suggest poor ratings are the likely reason for Schlick’s departure.
