Christof Wahl (53), Chief Operating Officer of ProSiebenSat.1, will leave the German media company on July 31, 2018.
No details were given regarding the reasons for Wahl’s departure or his future plans, but ProSiebenSat.1 stressed that he leaves the group under mutual consent.
Wahl who joined ProSiebenSat.1 in February 2015 is one of the architects of the company’s digital business, having built up and expanded this area in the last years. Most recently, he was responsible within the entertainment segment for the online video business, AdTech and data field, the distribution of entertainment content as well as the partnerships within the European Media Alliance.
In the course of the integration to one joint entertainment business, Wahl’s areas of responsibility regarding digital entertainment will be bundled in this pillar to reach tighter collaboration of classic and digital offerings.
“Christof Wahl has built up the video joint venture 7TV that we, together with Discovery, want to establish and strongly grow to a successful entertainment streaming offering,” said Conrad Albert, deputy CEO of ProSiebenSat.1. “Christof Wahl has thus participated in shaping important corner stones for our company’s future.”
