Italian prodco Garbo Produzioni has appointed Stefano Torrisi as CEO and MD of Garbo Stories, its new fiction-focused Spanish division.
Torrisi joins the Rome-based firm following a stint as EVP of Banijay Italy and Banijay Group Spain, which he departed last year.
Before that, he served as commercial director of Endemol Shone Italy from October 2014 to November 2017.
Maite Bulgari, chairwoman & founder of Garbo Produzioni, commented: “With the arrival of Stefano Torrisi, a highly experienced professional, we want to continue to innovate in the audiovisual sector with high-quality content and international planning.
“Stefano is a perfect leader to deal with two strategic markets for our company, Italy and Spain, anticipating new market trends and creating increasingly productive and constructive alliances that allow us to position ourselves in new and ambitious areas.”
