Camilla Hammer exits for 'personal reasons'

LONDON — Sales topper Nadine Nohr has been tapped as interim CEO on a 12-month contract at Shine Intl. following Camilla Hammer’s departure for personal reasons.

Hammer joined Shine at the beginning of the year from the Modern Times Group, where she was senior VP acquisitions. She will leave at the end of the week.

Shine has employed Nohr, highly regarded within the TV distribution community, as a consultant for three years. Exec ran Granada Intl. for 12 years.

Shine Group CEO Alex Mahon said, “We are sorry to see Camilla leave, but are understanding and respectful of her decision to do so. She has steered Shine Intl. to be on course for another record year of growth, buoyed by successful sales campaigns for scripted properties.”

These include the second series of Carnival’s “The Hour” and Frank Spotnitz-penned “Hunted” from Kudos, in addition to the strong performances of global formats including “MasterChef.”

Shine is chaired by Elisabeth Murdoch and owned by News Corp.
