PARIS, September 23 (Reuters) – Rodolphe Belmer has joined the TF1 group as chief executive, a press release announced on Friday.
“Gilles Pélisson, Chairman and CEO of the TF1 Group, will propose to the Board of Directors on October 27, 2022 to appoint Rodolphe Belmer, CEO”, says this press release.
“On this date, the functions of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will be separated. Gilles Pélisson will thus become Chairman of the Group’s Board of Directors until the closing of the 2022 accounts, on February 13, 2023, the date on which Rodolphe Belmer would be proposed as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the TF1 Group.”
Bouygues, parent company of the media group, announced last Friday the abandonment of the merger project of TF1 and M6 for lack of overcoming the reluctance of the Competition Authority.
