Endemol taps Brass as COO

Edwin van Es upped to chief financial officer

LONDON

Global production house Endemol has tapped Martha Brass as chief operating officer to replace Virginie Calmels who left last week.

Brass, previously managing director of international operations, will continue to oversee emerging markets and be responsible for extra territories including Scandinavia plus Central and Eastern Europe.

She joined Endemol four years ago from FremantleMedia. She previously worked at Amaze TV and 19 Entertainment.

Move comes as Endemol announced it is setting up a management committee to oversee and support the business on a daily basis, on which Brass will sit.

Meanwhile, Edwin van Es, formerly group finance director, is upped to chief financial officer.

Also joining the committee is Boudewijn Beusmans, global head of legal, and corporate secretary.

Beusmans, Brass and Van Es will all continue to report to CEO Just Spee.

Spee said: “The new management committee brings together a team of people who are highly experienced and extremely effective in their respective fields.

“This new structure will help us to focus on the key strategic drivers of the business as we look to continue the growth and diversification Endemol achieved throughout 2012.”

Endemol, still best known for reality juggernaut “Big Brother,” has begun to make an impact with drama including AMC’s “Hell on Wheels” and the BBC’s “Ripper Street.”

Additionally the company has sold a wide range of scripted shows in Australia, India, Russia, Holland, Italy, Spain and Argentina.
