Anna Marsh to Replace Didier Lupfer as STUDIOCANAL CEO


Anna Marsh has been appointed CEO of STUDIOCANAL, replacing Didier Lupfer, who is exiting the company to pursue independent production projects.

Marsh has been serving as managing director of STUDIOCANAL UK and executive VP of international sales. In her new role, Marsh will be responsible for all STUDIOCANAL operations in France and abroad.

Marsh will take up her new position on December 16. She will continue to run STUDIOCANAL UK for an interim period until a new managing director is appointed. She will report to Maxime Saada, CEO of Canal+ Group and president of STUDIOCANAL.

“Anna is the ideal person to manage STUDIOCANAL after being executive VP of distribution and then managing director of our U.K. subsidiary,” said Saada. “Her in-depth knowledge of the company and our markets, as well as her international profile, will be essential to accelerate the development of STUDIOCANAL in its ambition of becoming a leader in the production and distribution of European films and series.”

Saada added: “Under the leadership of Didier, the company has taken on a new dimension, particularly in production, where he has been directly and successfully involved. We wish him every success in his projects.”
