Jean-Thierry Augustin (pictured) succeeded Laurent-Eric Le Lay as company CEO in April. He has now appointed Julien Bergeaud as development director with a job description that includes “reinforcing global coherence across all TV channels”.
Eurosport France managing director Arnaud Simon will take on a wider role, adding TV content director, broadcast and programmes to his title and taking charge of the international versions of the channels he runs.
Vincent Gérard-Hirne, Eurosport’s technical director, takes over the responsibility for production and distribution technology for the different language versions of Eurosport’s channels.
Simon and Gérard-Hirne will report to Eurosport deputy managing director François Schmitt. Bergeaud reports directly to Augustin.
The changes are effective immediately.
Discovery recently bought in to Eurosport with an option to take a controlling stake in 2015. French commercial broadcaster TF1 remains the majority shareholder in the meantime.
