RTL Group has announced the appointment of Jennifer Mullin as the new CEO of FremantleMedia, effective September 1st. Mullin, currently CEO of FremantleMedia North America (FMNA), will succeed Cécile Frot-Coutaz who, as announced in March, is leaving to join YouTube.
Mullin’s successor as CEO of FMNA will be announced in due course. Until then, she will remain CEO of FMNA.
Bert Habets, CEO of RTL Group, says: “I am absolutely delighted that Jennifer Mullin – one of the most experienced and successful producers and creatives within our Group – is taking over the leadership of FremantleMedia. A strong and hugely respected leader, Jennifer has been a key force in FremantleMedia’s creative renewal across unscripted and scripted programming and has a matchless understanding of the global content industry. I warmly welcome Jennifer in her new role and wish her every success – and I am very much looking forward to working with her to further drive the growth of our global content business.”
Prior to joining FMNA, Mullin worked as an Executive Producer at companies such as Paramount, Telepictures and Universal.
