Sichler to leave StudioCanal

Exec helped turn company around

Frederic Sichler, managing director for international production, acquisitions and development at StudioCanal, will ankle Dec. 31 for an unspecified international position.

StudioCanal prexy-director general Bertrand Meheut has urged him to retain close ties with the Canal Plus Group in future.

Sichler is credited with being integral to a turnaround in StudioCanal’s fortunes since arriving in February 2003. He arranged an international library distribution partnership with Universal; the distribution of StudioCanal’s library in the U.S. by Lionsgate; and the 2006 acquisition of British distrib Optimum, which accounts for more than 10% of the company’s revenues.
