Rickmeyer to be replaced by CinemaxX's Schwartz

LONDON — Rolf Rickmeyer, EM.TV & Merchandising’s head of finance, is quitting after less than a year with the German kidvidder.

Rickmeyer is understood to have fallen out of favor with the Kirch Group, one of EM.TV’s shareholders. He will be replaced by Marius Schwarz, head of finance for German exhib CinemaxX.

Prior to CinemaxX, Schwarz oversaw finance at Sat1, the Kirch-owned commercial TV channel.

Former Kirch exec Werner Klatten is set to replace EM.TV founder and CEO Thomas Haffa in September.
