MTG has made changes to its management structure, in order to further integrate the Group’s activities and bring us even closer to our consumers and partners in each market.
These changes include the appointment with immediate effect of MTG Executive Vice President Anders Jensen as CEO of MTG Sweden; Kim Poder as CEO of MTG Denmark; and Trygve Rønningen as CEO of MTG Norway. The country management roles are responsible for MTG’s free-TV, pay-TV and radio operations in each Nordic country.
MTG digital accelerator MTGx comprises Viaplay, Play and Ventures, and Jonas Karlén is appointed as CEO of Viaplay with effect from 18 August. Both he and Arnd Benninghof (CEO of Play & Ventures) report to MTG Executive Vice President and Chief Digital Officer Rikard Steiber.
In addition, MTG Executive Vice President Jette Nygaard-Andersen now also becomes CEO of the Group’s Central European free-TV, radio and local digital operations (in the Baltics, Czech Republic and Bulgaria), and CEO of MTG Broadcasting Technology. Marek Singer steps down as MTG Executive Vice President to take on the full time role as CEO of MTG’s Prima TV joint venture in the Czech Republic.
MTG’s Group-wide management functions otherwise remain the same and include MTG Executive Vice President Jakob Mejlhede’s responsibility for Programming and Content Development, and MTG Senior Vice President Peter Nørrelund’s responsibility for sport.
The changes are effective immediately and no other changes have been made to the MTG executive management team.
“These changes reflect our desire to capitalize on fast moving consumer trends in our markets, as video viewing is increasingly multi-screen, online and mobile. This moves us even closer to our audiences through the multiple contact points provided by our unique range of highly relevant online and offline entertainment products,” commented Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG President and CEO.
