All Media Baltics (AM Baltics), a media company in the Baltic states, has announced the appointment of Christian Anting as its new Group Chief Executive Officer.
AM Baltics was created in October 2017 after Providence Equity Partners acquired all of the media and Pay TV companies of Modern Times Group in the Baltics. Today, AM Baltics operates TV, radio and digital media channels and assets in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Most recently, Anting served as a Member of the Management Board in charge of Digital & eCommerce at the TVN Group in Poland. In this post, he was responsible for all TVN’s digital and e-commerce activities including online entertainment, OTT services and retail and the company’s digital venture arm, TVN Ventures.
In his new post, Anting will oversee all day to day operations of AM Baltics. He will also work closely with Providence Equity Partner-owned BITE Group, one of the largest international telecom groups in the Baltic countries, to create new content, entertainment and digital initiatives.
Tony Ball, Senior Adviser of Providence Equity Partners and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of BITE Group, said: “Christian Anting brings extensive international experience across Free TV, Pay TV and Digital. We are looking forward to working with Christian on driving business growth and developing new products and services together with our mobile operator BITE.”
Anting added: “I am very excited to join the AM Baltics team and lead the implementation of its strategic plan across all three markets working closely together with the local management teams. The Baltic countries are among the leaders in Europe when it comes to embracing and implementing digitalisation. With the support of Providence Equity Partners, AM Baltics has initiated a digital transformation process that will lead to a wide range of innovative entertainment options for our audiences in the future.”
