AMSTERDAM — Endemol Entertainment has tapped John van der Putten director of Endemol Interactive Intl., effective immediately.
Van der Putten moves up to his new position after two years as director of information, communication and technology and then operational director at Endemol Interactive. The division houses a growing bundle of companies, including Victoria Real and Zeppotron in the U.K., Mediabit in Spain and Endemol Online, all engaged in interactive program-making and delivery.
Van der Putten will be responsible for the strategic and operational activities of the division and will report directly to Endemol chief operating officer Ronald Goes.
His appointment is part of a reshuffle in the division following the departure of longtime Endemol board member Ruud Hendriks, who founded the interactive side of Endemol and had helped steer its course over the last few years.
