FME reveals raft of promotions in licensing team

Firm makes four key appointments within the North American licensing group.

FremantleMedia Enterprises has made a number of executive promotons within its US licensing team - supporting its expansion of third party brands, children's programming and brand development, live events and gaming, plus digital content creation.

David Luner (right), formerly SVP of consumer products and interactive at FME, has been promoted to EVP of consumer products, interactive and mobile. This means his remit expands beyond the firm's portfolio of TV brands to including an upcoming slate of new children's content, licensed and original game brands and the digital content development division.

Meanwhile, Olivier Delfosse (left), formerly director of interactive at FME, has been promoted to VP of interactive, mobile and digital content.

Chris Donnan has been promoted from senior manager to director of live events, making him responsible for producing touring shows and budgeting across all areas of FME's live events.

In addition, Dhivyah Ramanath has joined the FME team as senior manager of consumer products, softlines.

"Our licensing team in the Americas is one of the best in the business," said Keith Hindle, CEO Americas, FME.
