Endemol Confirms New CEO

HILVERSUM, July 5: At an Extraordinary General Meeting of
shareholders today, Elías Rodríguez-Viña Cancio was approved as the new
chairman and CEO of Endemol.

The move follows Joaquim Agut Bonsfills’ abrupt
resignation last month. Rodriguez-Viña will chair the company’s management
board, joining its other three members: Tom Barnicoat, COO; Peter Bazalgette,
chief creative officer; and Jan Peter Kerstens, CFO.

He joins Endemol from parent company Telefónica, where he
has been responsible for the group’s non-core subsidiaries. Before that he was
CFO of Terra Lycos.
