Endemol Shine Group Netherlands’ co-CEO Iris Boelhouwer will be stepping down this October, with her co-CEO Bouwdewijn Beusmans absorbing the position.
Boelhouwer is said to be leaving the position to “focus on personal projects”. In coming weeks she will work together with Boudewijn and the rest of the management team to ensure a smooth transition.
She said: “With the company on a strong footing and back to its true creative roots, this new structure makes absolute sense and I feel that I can now leave onto new adventures knowing the business is in excellent hands.”
Boelhouwer joined Endemol Shine in 2005. During her tenure with the company, she held a number of senior positions, including executive producer and creative director for Endemol in the Netherlands.
Sophie Turner-Laing, CEO of Endemol Shine Group, said: “Thanks to Iris’ work alongside Boudewijn, Endemol Shine Netherlands is now on a very strong creative footing with a pipeline of exciting new shows with huge international potential from Big Bounce Battle (pictured) and The Talent Project, and I would like to thank her for her outstanding contribution throughout these years.
“Going forward, I could not imagine anyone more capable than Boudewijn to lead our Dutch operation through its next stage of growth.”
