TDF has appointed Bastian Manintveld as Head of M&A and Business Development of its Media Services division. The appointment of Mr Manintveld, a leading television executive, signals a focus on growth for TDF Media Services whose footprint includes more than 500 employees across 9 countries.
Manintveld said, “I am honoured and excited to lead the M&A, business development and partnership efforts of TDF Media Services, one of Europe’s leading media services companies. I look forward to working with the Media Services team to help grow and consolidate our leading position in the media services market.”
Most recently, Manintveld was a Founder of BeBanjo, a software company that develops tools for teams managing on-demand services, which was acquired by the TDF Group in 2011.
Julien Seligmann, CEO of TDF’s Media Services division said, “Bastian is a well-connected, visionary leader in the television industry. I look forward to working with him to enhance our product and service offerings for our over 1500 customers.”
“The media services market is increasingly shifting to digital and non-linear technology, products and services. We’re very well positioned to address both linear as well as non-linear service requirements. We have an excellent international team, a strong European footprint and a full service offering for broadcasters, PayTV operators and MSO’s. There is a lot to do and I can’t wait to get started,” Manintveld said.
