Valente said: “I am thrilled to take on my new role at All3Media and am eager to lead the organization to further success. Working with some of the industry’s strongest talents has been, and will continue to be, my core interest, alongside a focus on building the German business.

“I am also happy that in Felix we have an experienced COO to work with all of our German companies—a manager who has a fantastic reputation for being both an enabler for production teams and a great international networker.”
