Jennifer Mullin, currently CEO of FremantleMedia North America (FMNA), will succeed Cécile Frot-Coutaz who, as announced in March 2018, is leaving to join YouTube.
Mullin’s successor as CEO of FMNA will be announced in due course. Until then, she will remain CEO of FMNA.
“I am absolutely delighted that Jennifer Mullin – one of the most experienced and successful producers and creatives within our Group – is taking over the leadership of FremantleMedia,” said Bert Habets, CEO of RTL Group.
“A strong and hugely respected leader, Jennifer has been a key force in FremantleMedia’s creative renewal across unscripted and scripted programming and has a matchless understanding of the global content industry. I warmly welcome Jennifer in her new role and wish her every success – and I am very much looking forward to working with her to further drive the growth of our global content business.”
Mullin has been CEO of FMNA, the largest unit of the global FremantleMedia Group, since May 2017. She joined FMNA as SVP of Current Programming in 2005, becoming Executive Vice President of Current Programming in 2012 and then Co-CEO of FMNA in 2015.
Prior to joining FMNA, Jennifer worked as an Executive Producer at companies such as Paramount, Telepictures and Universal.
