As it continues to consolidate its leadership structure in Europe, Warner Bros. Disccovery has established a team working in France, Benelux and Africa under the direction of Pierre Branco, general manager for the region.
Branco, who reports to Head of EMEA Priya Dogra, was previously Country Manager for WarnerMedia in France, Benelux, Middle East and Africa and Head of EMEA Ad Sales and Affiliates. Changes to her equipment take effect immediately.
In the new design, Romain Carbonne will manage the research and insights teams across the region, while Guillaume Coffin will lead affiliate sales, ad sales and content licensing for the region.
Yves Elalouf will lead the home entertainment (video, gaming and digital) and consumer products retail business.
Tatiana Lagewaard will lead content and programming for general entertainment and factual brands in the region, including local unscripted productions for networks Discovery+ and Discovery.
Meanwhile, Stephane Queneudec will continue to lead the local French theater production business, reporting to Branco. She will also pull double duty, managing the content licensing team and reporting to Guillaume Coffin.
On the other hand, Gregory Schuber will lead the group’s marketing and public relations for the region. The marketing and public relations teams for general entertainment and factual brands and for content licensing in the region will now report to Schuber.
Finally, Olivier Snanoudj will continue in his position as head of film distribution for France and Benelux.
Branco said, “The new leadership team will work with me to write the next chapters of our organization with a ‘one company’ mentality. I am convinced that we have the content, the brands, the talents and the passion to further grow our business and position ourselves strongly for the future in a competitive and challenging region that is also full of opportunity.”
