Shine Intl. prexy Chris Grant to ankle

Exec was last of three from Reveille acquisition

Shine Intl. president Chris Grant is exiting the company, which will move from Los Angeles to London, parent company Shine Group announced Tuesday.

Grant opted out of relocating but will stay on for six months to assist in the transition. Shine Group prexy Alex Mahon will oversee Shine Intl. on an interim basis.

Grant’s departure marks the complete withdrawal of the trio of executives who ran Shine subsid Reveille after founder Ben Silverman sold it to Shine in 2007. Mark Koops, who exited Shine last year, and Howard Owens, who left last week, ran Reveille along with Grant, who was bumped up to prexy of Shine Intl. shortly after the acquisition of Silverman’s former company.

“This move ensures we fully realize the potential for our IP while remaining nimble, responsive and best able to act at pace on behalf of our companies and clients,” said Mahon. “Chris Grant has been an exceptional leader, establishing Shine Intl. as one of the most successful and respected distributors of content globally.”

Shine Intl. handled sales and distribution of formats like “Masterchef” in more than 150 countries for all the entities under Shine Group, including Reveille, Kudos, Dragonfly, Princess Prods. and Metronome.

Shine will maintain a small presence in Los Angeles. John Pollak, exec VP of Shine Intl., will remain Stateside in his role until the end of the year, but Martin Rakusen, senior VP of business and operations, will relocate to London.
