BBC Worldwide Productions France Restructures Senior Team


BBC Worldwide has restructured the senior management team at its French production base, as Gery Leymergie and Pierre-Marie Gadonneix take up new positions within the company.

The production base will now have two senior directors, with Leymergie promoted to chief content officer, overseeing all factual and entertainment programming, and Gadonneix as COO, responsible for the production teams and all operations. Both Leymergie and Gadonneix will report to Jacob Deboer, global commercial director of formats and production.

Deboer commented: “The reorganization of our senior team simplifies our reporting structure and with Gery and Pierre-Marie, both well established at BBC Worldwide and leading the business, 2018 is shaping up to be our busiest year ever.”
