Bruce Mann, Chief Content Officer said: “Jeroen has delivered tremendous value to Liberty Global through his commercial acumen and team leadership. He has positioned Liberty Global extremely well to navigate an evolving rights landscape and maximise its investment in content. I want to thank Jeroen for his tremendous service to Liberty Global. He has long been one of the driving forces behind the content partnerships that fuel our entertainment proposition.”
