Newen Strengthens Team


PARIS: Newen has bolstered its team with the appointment of Fanchon Giorda as development director and Ella Cohen as head of research and acquisitions.

Giorda, who joined Newen as deputy development director in 2015, is replacing Alexandra Crucq, who has been appointed as CEO of Production Valley, the new non-scripted department within Newen Group.

Cohen began her career as an executive assistant in the distribution department at Newen. In 2011, she joined the development department as coordinator.

“The development department is absolutely necessary in order to enhance our capacity to innovate,” said Bibiane Godfroid, the deputy director in charge of content at Newen. “This dynamic will help us to create and buy the best formats for any type of audience not only in France but all around the world. I wish Fanchon and Ella the best for their brand-new positions at Newen.”
