Banijay Benelux Appoints New COO


Banijay Benelux has bolstered its board of directors to include a new chief operating officer, Alex Doff.

Doff will be collaborating closely with the territory’s production labels and will be responsible for the business and organizational management of Banijay Benelux. He will also oversee its legal, operations and business affairs departments. Doff will also continue as managing director of NL Film.

He joins the board alongside CEO Peter Lubbers and CFO Colin Delahay.

Doff began his career at John de Mol Productions, after which he worked for four years as business director at Endemol. He had a brief stint at RTL, where he was responsible for the acquisition of Dutch content and then moved to Talpa Productions as business director and later became manager of operations of Talpa International. He was later appointed business director of Talpa Fiction and also held the position of finance director of Talpa Global. He joined ITV Global Entertainment in 2020 as finance director and, in March 2022, moved to NL Film as managing director.

Lubbers said: “With Alex, we have gained a reliable, strategic, and above all, pleasant business partner, who knows the market both on a local and international level. With years of experience within the media, on a financial and business level, he brings an enormous network, and his passion for film and television is invaluable for our organization.”

Doff added: “Banijay Benelux is a truly creative hub, where every conceivable genre is developed and produced by our labels. A versatile group that offers true opportunity and growth prospects for its talent, there is so much potential for growth, and I look forward to working with Peter and the wider team on maximizing it.”
