Ambroise Delorme appointed COO of Marathon Media


Marathon Media is delighted to announce the hire of its new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Ambroise Delorme has been appointed from TF1 Group where he held the position of Acquisitions Manager.

Ambroise Delorme will be working closely with CEO Vincent Chalvon-Demersay and General Manager David Michel in managing the company and negotiating contracts. He will also be assisting with the development of Marathon Media, France's number one animation producer, which is currently expanding its business in domestic and international drama.

Ambroise is replacing Laurent Jacobelli, who had been performing this same function since January 2009 and who recently decided to give a turn to his career.

"We are very sad to see Laurent go," admit Vincent Chalvon-Demersay and David Michel. "He did a fantastic job at reinforcing Marathon Media. We respect his choice and hope he will be very happy in the pursuing of his new project. We have been working alongside Ambroise for a long time and are very glad he agreed to join our team, to help us in our development and the furthering of our diversification strategy."

A graduate of EBS (European Business School) and ESSEC's Media & Entertainment Master Executive Program, Ambroise Delorme began his career in 1999, with TF1 Group, as management controller for the Eurosport channel. For the past five years, he has been in charge of acquisitions and organizing coproductions for the group's youth sector.

Ambroise will take up his post as of February 1st, 2013.
