RTL Group has appointed Marc Puškarić as the new CEO of RTL Croatia, effective July 1, succeeding Henning Tewes.
Puškarić is currently managing director of Bertelsmann Brazil Investments and the Bertelsmann Corporate Center in Brazil. He will succeed Tewes, who will join Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland as COO of program affairs and multichannel. In his new post, Puškarić will report to Andreas Fischer, chairman of the supervisory board of RTL Croatia and senior VP of global operations management for broadcast and content of RTL Group.
Fischer said: “Marc Puškarić combines broad international experience with cultural affinity for Croatia. I am delighted that we have found such a dynamic executive from within the Bertelsmann Group to lead RTL Croatia. Together with the strong management team of RTL Croatia, he will continue the success of the company. I warmly welcome Marc to his new role and wish him all the best—and I am very much looking forward to working with him on further strengthening the market position of RTL Croatia.”
Fischer added: “I would like to express deep gratitude to Henning Tewes, who has successfully led RTL Croatia for the past five years. Henning made RTL Croatia sustainably profitable, expanded the family of channels and significantly boosted creativity across all business activities. Under his leadership, RTL Croatia has shaped the digital market in Croatia and with the launch of RTL Play, he has positioned RTL Croatia as a first mover in video on demand.”
